Alaska
Aurora Borealis - Winter visitors to Alaska see the skies ablaze with the shimmering veils of the Northern Lights. Sitka - Russian influence blended with Native heritage and fabulous coastal scenery make this one of Alaska's most diverting towns. The Chilkoot Trail - Follow in the (frozen) footsteps of the Klondike prospectors on this demanding 33-mile trail near Skagway. Talkeetna - Every Alaska visitor's favorite small town is the base for superb flightseeing trips around Mount McKinley. Denali National Park - Alaska's finest park offers superb mountain scenery and incomparable wildlife spotting around the highest peak in North America. Anchorage Bars - Anchorage is an exceptionally atmospheric place to drink: while the city itself is relatively cosmopolitan, many of its bars, such as sawdust-on-the-floor Chilkoot Charlie's, are characterized by a wild-frontier-saloon feel. Dalton Highway - This lonely and grueling 500-mile road leads north from Fairbanks to the Arctic Ocean. Salmon - Join the anglers who line up elbow-to-elbow in the salmon-bearing rivers of the Kenai Peninsula, "Anchorage's Playground," where the savory species can weigh as much as 30 pounds or more. Juneau - Born as a roughneck mining town in 1880, Juneau is surprisingly urbane. The city is also close to breathtaking glacier vistas and choice whale-watching spots. Wrangell-St Elias National Park - Solitude-seekers should head for the pristine glaciers and fjords of remote Wrangell-St Elias National Park to watch bears, caribou and other wildlife.
