Today, the only real way to see Alaska is by roughing it in the great outdoors!
Great North" is actually the only Wild West remaining in America and it's on display throughout the state. Expect to find tent camping and RV resorts most everywhere - in places as close as the biggest city, or as far as the most remote Alaskan wilderness.
With over three million acres, Alaska is home to the largest state park system in the United States and holds nearly one-third of America's state park lands. In Alaska, you should not only expect to find top-notch rafting, kayaking, glaciers but, of course, wildlife just about anywhere.
Add to that one of the most popular Alaskan camping destinations - Denali National Park where campers and tourists alike can surround themselves with wilderness.
Farther afield, hikers and backpackers will also want to experience a half dozen of the state's most famous treks, including the Iditarod Trail to walk in the footsteps of early American explorers and prospectors.
Campgrounds are also located near downtown of Anchorage and Fairbanks, so even first-time campers are afforded at least one foot in civilization.
For history, culture, jaw-dropping scenery (and, naturally, bear watching) head north... to Alaska.
