Home to over half of Alaska’s population, Southcentral is a playground of activities from world-class fishing to hiking and wildlife viewing. With mountains and lakes, Southcentral offers the advantages of remote wilderness, but is linked via roads. World-class rainbow trout and salmon shimmer brilliantly, beckoning to prospective anglers. Southcentral has the amenities travelers seek, while serving as a gateway to the wilderness experience.

I spent 3 weeks of June in Alaska this year.  All I can say is I fell in love!!  I have never seen anything so gorgeous as the mountains there.  I have family in Palmer, AK so that is where we spent a lot of our time, but we went motorhoming to Denali National Park and got to see Mt. McKinley at least 4 times.  I hear that seeing the mountain is a rarity and I savored every moment of it.  We also went motorhoming in Seward, AK and visited the Exit Glacier on our way back to Palmer.  We spent time in Anchorage also and went to the Alaska Native Heritage Center outside of Anchorage. 

I'm glad I spent 3 weeks as there is so much to see and I'm ready to go back and see the rest!!  I live in Florida and our clouds here are as pretty as the ones in Alaska; however, when they move there are no mountains behind them!!  Boy, do I miss that!!  I would recommend a trip to Alaska to everyone who hasn't been there and take extra time there is much to see.  Thanks!
