Cheap flights to Alaska

One of the roads less travelled in United States would be Alaska, the 49th state and by far, the largest in the whole of America. Large in size and pretty much isolated with the other states, many might feel daunted visiting Alaska. Being home to a sparse population evoke feelings of lonesome, and with its geographical location on the Arctic Circle makes you feel cold all the same. And perhaps this is what makes Alaska all the more interesting. Taking the road less travelled, you will see that days of travelling on the road have its rewards: experience the rainforest of Southeast Alaska or go camping in the Denali National Park, go kayaking among icebergs in Prince William Sound. You can also go to smaller regions of the state, like the Kenai Peninsula which is located on the south of Anchorage. Travelling to Alaska may come with a price, but it will be worth it all the same.

What to see & do

Anchorage Museum was one of the Alaska’s premium museums with a world-class facility. It is the largest Alaska Native collection in the state surrounded by large video screens that shows contemporary Native life. The museum is also home to the Imaginarium Discovery Center, a hands-on science centre that previously housed a separate downtown location. On its first floor you will find the Art of the North Gallery that showcases masterpieces of Alaska’s art giants. The second floor is filled with life-sized dioramas that traces back 10,000 years of human settlement.

One of the historic sites in Alaska would be the Aleutian WWII National Historic Area, a 134-acres national historic area that commemorates the events of World War II that took place on the Aleutian Islands. Most of the park preserves Fort Schwatka, towering nearly 1000 feet above the water of Bering Sea which serves as the observation posts numbered to 100, command stations and other structures built to withstand earthquakes and 100mph winds. In addition, the gun mounts here are said to be the best preserved in the country that include tunnels and bunkers, allowing gunners to cart ammunition from one side to the other.

How to get around within Alaska

To get around Alaska, you can simply opt to hop into the Alaska Railroad train, which runs from Seward through Anchorage, Denali, and Fairbanks to North Pole, with spurs to Whittier and Palmer. Aside from its high volume of summertime passenger services, the railroad also plays a vital role in moving Alaska’s natural resources to ports in Anchorage. You can also opt to take the bus and shuttle services that takes you between cities. If you want to travel in style, you can also opt to travel via cruise, which is one of the best ways to see Alaska and its collection of glaciers, whales, and coasts.
