Richardson Highway to Valdez, Alaska
If you kayak or heliski or fish or just love little towns surrounded by mountains, head to Valdez. Unless you're truly strapped for time, drive (and, if you are strapped for time, maybe save Valdez for your next trip). The Richardson Highway, which stretches 366 miles from Fairbanks to Valdez, overflows with some of nature's greatest hits, road houses where you can fill up on pancakes and conversation, the largest national park in America (Wrangell-St. Elias), easy access to Worthington Glacier, camping, and plenty of stretch–your–legs hiking opportunities. One of nature's most elegant stretches is just outside of Valdez. As the water of Keystone Canyon's waterfalls, including Horsetail and Bridal Veil Falls, tumble down, shapes emerge and quickly disappear. The stretch will stick in your mind for years to come.
