Great Alaskan Holidays
Forget spending time packing and repacking your stuff while on a grand tour of Alaska
. Instead, shove your bags inside an RV and hit the road. Though vast tracts of Alaska aren’t on the road system, you can still hit more than enough good spots to keep you occupied for, well, a lifetime. For a first-time RV trip around the state, get a taste of life in south-central and interior Alaska by starting in Anchorage, heading north to Denali National Park and Fairbanks, south to Copper River Valley (the views from the highway!) and Valdez, and then back to Anchorage. For that runaround, give yourself two weeks to keep from feeling like you’re spending more time driving than doing. Bonus: While there are plenty of RV parks, in Alaska you can also just pull off the highway and snooze the night away.
