Hi everyone! I am so excited that you are interested in Alaska! It is the most wonderful place on earth in my opinion. There are so many outdoor activities to take part in, fun places to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery, and amazing places to get lost (but don’t get too lost) and explore! My favorite thing to do in Alaska is to be with my friends outside mountain biking or skiing. I also like hanging out with my family at our cabin where we fish, berry pick, hike, and explore. My favorite season in Alaska is the summer because I love the endless days, the sun, and the happiness and joy that spills out of everyone when they are getting dirty outside!
Here are some of my favorite things to do in Southcentral Alaska – one for each season!
