Alaska is one of those places people visit and never leave. It’s a nature lover’s paradise, an outdoorsman’s oasis, and a photographer’s dream. Natural beauty abounds at every angle and it’s such a wonder to behold.
The locals are extremely friendly and visitors should endeavor to talk to them whenever possible. They have truly unique experiences and advice. My favorite restaurant while visiting Alaska was not a place found in tour guides, but upon the advice of a local. It had a quaint, hometown feel and served good food for good prices. And I never would have known the bear and winter troubles some Alaskans face if I hadn’t spoken with the host of my bed and breakfast.
