Places to Go




In Alaska’s heartland, you’ll see the continent’s tallest peak, Denali, and wide expanses of tundra. The forests are teeming with wildlife and bird life ranging from the formidable grizzly to stately herds of caribou to the state bird, the Willow Ptarmigan. Experience summer’s midnight sun or the winter’s northern lights. Wildlife can be seen on the highway that runs by Denali National Park, carrying visitors to and from Anchorage and Fairbanks. Interior is the original home of Alaska’s Athabascan Indians. Gold miners, farmers and fur trappers later discovered the riches of this region.

Visitor Comments

My husband and I arrived in Anchorage in August and were met by my sister who lives and has lived in Anchorage for most of her life.  We got in the car and she decided to take us nearby to an off the road view point.  As we drove in, we heard a noise and looked into the trees and saw two bears going off into the woods.  My husband got out of the car to try to take a picture, and a policeman drove in and said "Sir, get back into your car." Just then we looked across the street and saw a mother moose and a baby walking  in front of us, and then we looked to the left and saw a fox peeking at us from a top of a small hill.  Needless to say, within 15 minutes of arrival in Anchorage we had seen 5 wild life.  A wonderful trip to Seldovia on a small plane, boating with our relatives and seeing Charlie, the welcoming seal in the inlet were great.  I recommend everyone to get to Alaska and use their local Travel Agent.  Carol Hundeby   C & D Travel  Stone Mtn.
