Home to fantastic fjords, breathtaking coastlines, rushing rivers, temperate rain forests, majestic mountains, glorious glaciers, a wealth of wildlife, and a rich cultural heritage, Alaska hosts 1.3 million tourists a year. Best Places Alaska offers these adventure-seekers newly updated recommendations on the finest sights and attractions of the Last Frontier. Written by a lifelong eighth-generation Alaskan and former award-winning newspaper reporter along with a crew of top-notch Alaskan writers, the third edition contains 50 percent new material, including a newly expanded section on cruise ships, new three-day planners, new details on Prince of Wales Island, and new sidebars. Readers will find detailed information on park outfitters, milepost stops, and festivals -- from salmon derbies and dog mushing races to exciting Native cultural events. They'll learn the top spots for halibut and salmon fishing, safe bear-viewing, kayaking Prince William Sound, and hiking in Denali National Park. The book also features star-rated restaurants and lodging, and helps travelers negotiate cities from Ketchikan to Barrow. Special sections detail wilderness lodges, driving the Alaska Highway, and viewing the northern lights.
