When visiting Alaska don't forget to stop and say hello to the 177 people that live here in Whittier. This little fishing village is located on the Prince William Sound connecting you by boat to many of Alaska's great glaciers. A quick cruise down the Alaska Marine Highway will get you to Cortez in 2 hours.
If water travel is not your thing, don't fret. Whittier is one of the most convenient ways to hop the Alaska Railroad. Not only a great form of transportation, but a perfect way to see the peaks and valleys of Alaska's SW.
