Talkeetna, Alaska
There are several small towns around Alaska that make visitors of years past smile. Talkeetna sits pretty high atop that list. The town, a good stop between Anchorage and Denali National Park, is a hodgepodge of history stop, arty spot, beer fillup, hearty food destination, and mountain climbing mecca. Talkeetna is the starting point for everybody setting out to climb Denali herself. But it's also the go-to for visitors who enjoy quirky little towns with huge personalities. Thanks to cruise ship bus tours, the town does get a bit overrun during the summer months but it's still worth swinging in. But if you happen to be in Alaska during the winter and want to attend a very Alaskan event: don't miss the Bachelor Auction. The entire town gets revved up and pretty darn drunk. It's damn fun.
