Alaska – Wait No Longer!!
My favorite destination is Alaska! With our 49th State being 1/5th the size of ‘the lower 48’, it is a vacation that takes plenty of planning and the service of a knowledgeable travel agent. Not only can I assist you with knowledge I have gained after my 11 visits to Alaska, I have also studied to become an Alaska Destination Specialist.
At Mendenhall Glacier
A trip to Alaska usually includes cruising the ‘Inside Passage’, with each port offering its own personality, from Skagway’s pride of telling stories of their Gold Rush days, to Ketchikan’s boasting their title of ‘Salmon Capital’, to Juneau … the only capital city in the U.S. with no roads in and out of the city, just to mention a few. Also, getting up close to view a glacier and having the opportunity to see it ‘calving’ – you will be in awe. The time spent traveling the ‘Inside Passage’ most often is spent on a cruise ship. During this time you will experience pampering, time to sit back and watch the scenery and sea life go by, while you dine, enjoy onboard entertainment, shop, gaze at the ocean or one of many other ways to pass your time.
Some may choose to extend their stay of Alaska and include a land tour as part of their vacation. Here you will have many opportunities to view wildlife, witness the beauty Alaska has to offer and experience several modes of transportation in doing so. During one of my visits, I traveled by plane, cruise ship, sternwheeler, luxury train and motor coach, with each day day being a new adventure. Time permitting; no visit to Alaska would be complete without a trip into Denali National Park. Including this provides the opportunity to view Mt. McKinley (weather permitting) as well as wildlife.
I would love to help you plan your ‘trip of a lifetime’ and share my favorite destination with you. Please contact me at [email protected] or 608-791-8358. And, ask me about planning a family reunion or a multi-generational trip to this amazingly beautiful destination. I’ve both planned and escorted these types of groups to the Great Land!
