Save Place
Hickory, Denali National Park and Preserve, AK 99755, USA
Do you want to hold a sleepy Alaskan husky puppy? Or maybe three or four? Of course you do. In the woods near the entrance of Denali National Park, you can visit the kennels and training camp (and nursery) of four-time Iditarod champ Jeff King....
Save Place
For a grownup city of 300,000, Anchorage manages to maintain a low-rise, get-outside vibe, and that’s clearly not just a show for the vacationers passing through. The Tony Knowles Coastal Trail runs through parks and estuaries along the city’s...
Save Place
Sister cruise lines Holland America and Princess have cleverly invested in a domed observatory train to enhance the already spectacular trip between coastal Anchorage and Denali National Park and Preserve to the north. Board the train in Anchorage...
Save Place
Mile 238.9 Parks Hwy, Denali National Park and Preserve, AK 99755, USA
I like hotels in general, but there’s a special place in my heart for national park lodges. The range of accommodations usually encompasses several levels of vacation budgets (Yay for patriotic inclusiveness!) and there’s nothing better than...
Save Place
Mile 238.9 Parks Hwy, Denali National Park and Preserve, AK 99755, USA
Planned as a gathering spot for guests at the McKinley Chalet Resort, the design of Denali Square manages to take all the great things about a hotel lobby (a community center, a delivery system for pride of place, a communications hub, and a...
Save Place
1975 Discovery Dr, Fairbanks, AK 99709, USA
These two Fairbanks attractions—run by the same entrepreneurial family—bring back that field trip learning-can-be-fun wonder. Gold factors so much into Alaska history that hearing a little more detail makes sense. Gold Dredge 8, an impressive...
Save Place
602 Eighth Ave, Dawson, YT Y0B 1G0, Canada
Given the current population of tiny Dawson City (1,300 year-round, with a healthy summertime bump from tourism workers), it’s hard to fathom that three writers of significance lived here on the same still-unpaved block on 8th Avenue. Just two...
Save Place
1001 Fourth Avenue, Dawson, YT Y0B 1G0, Canada
To say I was reluctant to enter a place whose name promised an experience as authentic as one in a themed restaurant at a mall is an understatement. My local hosts, however, were insistent so I dutifully finished my drink, walked down the street...
Save Place
Haines, AK 99827, USA
Around the bend from bustling Skagway, the placid town of Haines sits alongside the Lutak Inlet, with eagles swooping and whales breaching and bears snuffling at low-growing berry bushes nearby. It may sound busy but it’s decidedly and...
Save Place
Unless you backpack in, the only way to venture past Mile 14 on the 92-mile Park Road is by converted school bus. (The NPS is a beautiful example of democracy in action—my Tundra Wilderness bus was packed with visitors carrying the latest...
