We spent a week in August traveling thru Alaska with our two teenage daughters, and we all loved every minute! We flew into Anchorage where we rented a car and began our experience. We spent day one headed south of Anchorage taking in the beautiful sceenery. Day two we headed to Valdez, a beautiful drive loaded with so many points of interest to stop and visit. We spent three days in Valdez where we fished, took a glacier cruise and enjoyed the little community. From Valdez we headed north to Fairbanks and then south to Healy. The sceenery changes so much, it was an interesting day. We stayed at the Motel Nord Haven at Healy and found it to be the best choice we could have made. The Motel is spotless, the people were so accommodating, the continential breakfast was awesome - we just couldn't have made a better choice. Our last two days in Alaska we spent in and around Denali Park. The first day there was a beautiful sunny day at Denali and we ended the day white river rafting. The last day in Alaska we traveled back to Anchorage to fly home.
It was a wonderful trip and we truely enjoyed every minute. We were a little apprehensive about taking our daughters because they are very social and active, but as it turned out they had a great time and would quickly agree that it was a good experience.
