Location Alaska

Look for information on specific locations here!

Aleutian Islands star
Alaska is full of extremes. The Aleutian Islands are no different than the rest of the state. Just a portion of the Southwestern Region of Alaska, they hold extremes in location, weather, and history.

Best Burgers in Anchorage star
If you’re looking for a place to grab a fast burger but want to avoid the fast food chains, try Arctic Roadrunner on the Old Seward Highway.

Chicken Alaska star
How in the world does a little town, with a year round population of under 20 people, just off a major highway (by Alaskan terms), get the name of Chicken?

Dutch Harbor, Alaska star
Dutch Harbor; the busiest sea port in the entire United States, is also home to the crab boat fleet of the TV show "Deadliest Catch". Surrounded by spectacular volcanic mountains, Dutch Harbor sits on some of the richest fishing and crabbing grounds in the world.

Juneau Alaska star
Juneau Alaska is named for Joe Juneau. He and Dick Harris discovered gold in this area in 1880. After one year of being named Harrisburg, it was changed to Juneau when it was realized that it was not to be a fly by night town. Seems the lower 48 already had too many Harrisburg’s!

Matanuska-Susitna River Valley star
The Matanuska-Susitna Valley, known as “the Mat-Su” by locals, is an activity-filled valley in south central Alaska. Only an hour’s drive from Anchorage, the Mat-Su offers everything from towering glaciers and white water rafting to hiking, fishing and flight-seeing trips.

North Pole star
Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. Or at least there is a North Pole where Santa is said to live! Travel fourteen miles south of Fairbanks Alaska along the Richardson Highway, and you will pass right through North Pole Alaska.

Pribilof Islands star
To the north of the Aleutian Island chain, about 750 miles west of Anchorage, Alaska and 500 miles east of Siberia, Russia, are the Pribilof Islands. There are hundreds of islands in the state of Alaska, but these have a special draw.

Puffin Inn, Anchorage star
The Puffin Inn on Spenard in Anchorage has cheap rates and generous amenities.

The Dalton Highway star
The Dalton Highway, also known as “the haul road”, connects Fairbanks, Alaska with Deadhorse, Alaska and the Prudhoe Bay oil fields. This spectacular stretch of highway spans open tundra as well as the treacherous Brooks Range. The Dalton Hwy runs parallel to the Alaska Pipeline much of its length.

There's No Place Like Nome star
What do you think of when you hear Nome Alaska? If you’re like the rest of us, you think cold, snow, and ice. You might think of gold. You probably think Iditarod. But have you ever thought birding? How about sea cruises? Gift shopping Native Alaskan art? How about swimming? Read on.
