And the trip up the Alaska highway is one of the most beautiful drives in the world, wild life galore, Waterfalls along the road, pure clean air, Great fresh sea food, good people etc etc.

You must visit the Kenai Peninsula, fish the Kenai and take a drive down to Homer and head out to the homer spit to do some Halibut fishing or do some whale watching tours, you can also catch a fairy from Homer to Kodiak Island and check out the Kodiak Brown bears.

I suggest taking your time on the drive, stop often and enjoy the state.
LOL Hey and Alaska is the only place you can catch a "fairy", their wings get stiff in the cold and you can sneak up on 'em when they try to warm up.

Sorry, I'm not the spelling police because I can't spell but a Ferry ride might work better.

Here is the best reason to visit alone........ITS ALASKA!!!! How many people can say they've been to Alaska? Imagine being able to tell all your family and friends that you went to Alaska, say tons of awesome wildlife, drank the best beer, saw the greatest scenery and didn't even leave your hotel room!! (definately true if you go to Anchorage, Moose and Bear walk or run around downtown Anchorage, not to mention the major King Salmon run on Ship Creek runs right through downtown Anchorage as well) I'm only here for another couple of months and I'm going to miss this place so much. I HAVE to move cause the military says so but I will always remember and cherish my time here in the Great White North, America's Last Frontier!!

Denali. Absolutely incredible. If you can, I recommend making your way up to Wonder Lake.

Why go to Alaska

The "Freedom of big open awesome spaces" comes to mind.

I went to Anchorage and Kodiak in 2001 and LOVED IT.. I can't wait to go back. Yes, I am an avid outdoorsman and "wilderness type" but there is so much to do and see there.. Go panning for gold ! Stroll the fur shops in Anchorage - increidble!
