At 570,374 square miles, Alaska is by far the largest state in this country. There are no roads connecting the popular Southeast Alaska towns of Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan, and Sitka. You can only visit these scenic areas by ship or lots of short flights in small planes, and it's packed with stunning scenery and tons of things to do. My personal advice is to cruise Alaska -- it's really the best way to travel this majestic state.

Cruise Alaska for the Vacation of a Lifetime

If you're looking for an action-packed adventure, Alaska is the place to go. Go fishing for salmon or take a wildlife tour to spot otters, eagles, seals and whales. Take a helicopter flight and land on a glacier or take a dog-sled ride. You can also see the amazing glaciers found in Alaska which can be 75 miles long, six miles across, and 300 feet high where 20-story skyscrapers of ice break off and crash into the sea.

When you cruise Alaska, take some time to appreciate the history of this great state. Learn about the gold rush or take a train ride on the famous White Pass railroad. Visit the local museums or take the town tours offered by park rangers.

Whatever your interests, cruises to Alaska are sure to keep you occupied. So if a tropical vacation isn't your cup of tea, you might cruise Alaska for a vacation you'll never forget. There are plenty of Alaska vacation packages to choose from.
