The Can't-Miss Alaska Travel Experiences
Alaska is a beautiful state with plenty of nature so the journeys are usually quite scenic. To get between cities, you can opt for plane travel for a quick journey. Ferries are also an option to get between states but can be lengthier.
A budget-friendly option is to rent a car and drive around the state, which also allows you to see much of the scenic countryside. Buses/coaches are also an option for longer hauls, as well as shorter trips within cities. There are also taxis and Ubers that are readily available in the bigger cities.
Alaska has a fairly cold climate that varies in extent throughout the year, but the summer months are the most pleasant time to visit due to the comfortable temperatures and increased daylight.
If you are hoping to see the Northern Lights, then you should travel between August and April.
