Alaska Commentaires

The new dock and harbor is much safer than the old, mess of a dock that used to be in place. The drunks that make downtown Juneau so charming are still here, and the locally owned businesses that were able to roll with the changes are still in business and are doing better than ever.
There are lots of exciting things to do in Anchorage -- the Anchorage Museum, Zoo, historical walk downtown, ULU factory, walk or bike the coastal trail. Taste some great food at restaurants downtown. Bring warm and cold clothes, and mosquito spray too!
Anchorage is a world class city. One of my 5 favorite cities in the US.
Petersburg itself is a real gem, if only because it has not been ruined by the hordes of suspicious day trippers that the cruise ships disgorge, ruining Juneau, Sitka, and other places. Petersburg retains its isolated, small town feel and is surprisingly Scandinavian, even today.
From all I have learned about Hyder, Alaska, it appears to be a great place to visit and possibly live. It has the best of two worlds -- one, it can be reached by road and then it in nestled in a remote part of Alaska. It is the farthest south that an Alaska town can be reached by highway!
Anchorage hotels tend to double in price on June 1; however the off-season before then and after the US Labor Day weekend can be cold and many attractions don't gear up until June. Fun bike paths and moose in town. B&Bs can be a happy medium between the $$$ hotels and some of the less attractive hostels (~$80 in '05), For rest of state, Denali fills up early so plan ahead for that park if you can. Backcountry camping is usually available. If you bus to Denali, the train back is fun. McCarthy/St. Elias is uncrowded; more difficult to get to w/o a car. Small boat day tour to glaciers in Seward is recommended and easy to get too and a night there is fun.
