Owen Sinclair also cares for his elderly mother and is planning a trip to Alaska which he’ll take when the opportunity arises.

Alaska offers a number of destinations that are unlike anything in the lower 48 states. One of these places is Anchorage, a location which may not meet your expectations of a very cold place. The average temperature in summer is only around 65 degrees. These conditions are excellent for sight-seeing, including exploring the fjords of Prince William Sound, or trying something distinctively Alaskan, such as arctic biking. During winter you can try dog sledding or cross-country skiing.

Juneau is another popular tourist destination and is situated between the Gastineau Channel and the base of Mount Juneau. The state capital can serve as a starting point for a tour into the stunning wilderness of Alaska. This tour could include going kayaking, fishing, glacier hiking, and whale-watching.

One would also not be disappointed going to Seward, a charming little town with the title of “Gateway to Kenai Fjords National Park.” Once at the national park you can see beautiful tidewater glaciers, abundant wildlife, and captivating fjords.
