Driving Tips

Parks Highway

The vast majority of Southcentral Alaska is on the road system so traveling by car in this region is common. If you drive to Alaska, first remember you will have to go through Canada to get here. Therefore, it is a good idea to bring a passport if you have one. If you do not, picture ID and a birth certificate will suffice. Also remember that it is a long drive and you should be prepared with all of the safety equipment necessary for an extended road trip. If you plan to bring your pet along, be sure to get a certificate of health from your veterinarian.See Crossing the Border and Driving Regulations for more details. Also visit the Travel by Highway portion of the site.
