Shopping, Dining & Shows

What better way to commemorate a trip to Alaska than with a unique souvenir or collectible? Handcrafted pieces such as authentic Alaska Native moccasins, baskets, jewelry, carvings and both traditional and modern art pieces make great gifts, and are available at retail stores, museum gift shops, galleries and farmers markets throughout Alaska. To ensure pieces are genuine, look for the “Silver Hand” or “Made in Alaska” emblems that signify the product was made locally.

Alaska’s restaurants and nightlife offer a true taste of the Last Frontier. Wild Alaska seafood including salmon, halibut and king crab attract visitors from all over the world and can be sampled just about anywhere in the state. More and more restaurants are joining the local food movement in Alaska by featuring locally sourced produce, seafood and game in their menus. The Alaska Grown program’s recognizable brand helps to alert consumers that products are grown nearby.

In addition to the local food scene, Alaska boasts a thriving beer culture. Ranked fifth in the nation for breweries per capita in 2009, visitors can taste handcrafted brews at a growing number of breweries and brewpubs statewide. Additional beer-centric activities include brewery tours, festivals and special events. Cheers!
