Ok, no jokes that the best place to visit Alaska in winter is nowhere.
I will be speaking at Frequent Traveler University in Seattle, February 24-26. I am not going to make it pre-event in time for the great Boeing and Museum of Flight events arranged by René Points (RSVP here).
On the way out I may have a day or two to spare and am interested in Alaska. It is egging me on from its perch on the Travelers Century Club list.
Someday I will go in summer for a big national parks experience. For now, I am curious to see the state at rest.
What are some ideas for a quick winter visit?
The easiest for flights are Juneau, Anchorage. and Fairbanks.
At first glance, Juneau seems the more interesting town.
Fairbanks has the Northern Lights and I may yet sucker myself in to another night standing in the cold hoping the sky will light up.
Anchorage’s strengths seem more in the summer months.
Others I don’t yet know.
Readers, where should I go in Alaska?
