Break-Up In Alaska
The term “break-up” comes from the often dramatic breaking up of the ice on Alaska’s many iconic rivers; the Yukon, Kuskokwim, Tanana, Koyukuk and Copper rivers being some of the most well-known. But any Alaskan knows that break-up is about a lot more than just river ice.

Alaska's Other Ocean - the Arctic
Tourists often voice an interest in “dipping a toe in the Arctic Ocean” while on vacation in Alaska during the summer. The Arctic Ocean is considered exotic and mysterious due to the lack of access to it and how little, relatively speaking, is known about it.

Seward Alaska
Seward, Alaska, is one of the top tourist destinations on any Alaska vacation “bucket list”, no matter how you get there. The harbor town of Seward on Resurrection Bay in the Gulf of Alaska is only a 4-5-hour drive from Anchorage. It is famous for its scenic marine wildlife and glacier tours.

Cook Inlet - Waterways of Alaska
The waters of Cook Inlet surround the city of Anchorage on both sides and allow access to the busy deep-water Port of Alaska, but did you know this important waterway also stretches the length of the Kenai Peninsula and all the way to the Shelikof Strait between Kodiak Island and the mainland?

Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race
On the first Saturday of March, the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race starts an epic journey. After a crown-pleasing "ceremonial start" in Anchorage, Alaska, the real race begins. The goal, for the 60+ mushers and teams of Alaskan Huskies, is to be first to cross the finish line 1,000 miles away in Nome!

Three Bears Alaska
The first Three Bears Alaska grocery store was opened in 1980, in Tok, Alaska, but wasn't given this now iconic name until a second store opened in Valdez in 1989. Three Bears Alaska is now a chain of twelve stores ranging in size from large box store to convenience stores with fuel stations.

Alaska SeaLife Center
The Alaska SeaLife Center in Seward, Alaska, is much more than a public exhibit of Alaskan marine mammals, birds and fish. The Center is primarily dedicated to research and education. It is also the only permanent marine mammal rescue and rehabilitation facility in the state.

RV Travel to Alaska
Experience the excitement of being completely on your own, traveling across Alaska in an RV. Whether it's a travel trailer, camper, 5th wheel or motorhome, you are in for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

Running With the Reindeer
The Running of the Reindeer event has become one of the highlights of the two-week long, city-wide party that is Anchorage, Alaska's Fur Rendezvous. Based (very much tongue-in-cheek) on the Pamplona, Spain, “Running of the Bulls”, this uniquely Alaskan version is pure fun.

Whittier Tunnel to Prince William Sound
The amazing Whittier Tunnel, only an hour from Anchorage, is a 2 1/2 mile long combo vehicle/train tunnel. It is the entryway to Prince William Sound and the port town of Whittier, Alaska. Whether you take the train, a tour bus or your own vehicle - the tunnel is a must-see. Adventure awaits!
