Alaska Dream Vacation
Alaska Dream Vacation - 2 weeks in the Last Frontier
I never knew how much I wanted to visit Alaska until I started reading blogs and researching different areas. This trip is the one I am most excited about. We will visit in 2025 for our anniversary, but plan to go in late August/early September to hopefully have a chance of seeing northern lights, and still having decent weather.
I reasearched so much while planning our vacation to Alaska. I originally had planned to book a trip using a travel site but realized I wanted too many modifications that the price was sky high. I started reading blogs, looking at travel packages and then pieced together an itinerary that I thought would work for us. By doing it this way I estimated over $2,000 in savings!
Alaska cruises seem to be the most popular way to visit Alaska, but I honestly have no desire to do that. I've never been on a cruise, and while I think it could be a fun experience, there is too much inland that I want to do and being on the water doesn't accomplish this. I did go back and forth on adding a short cruise from Juneau to Anchorage to kick off our trip, but opted against it. This vacation will be a full two weeks, which is much longer than our usual vacations, and about the longest we can do right now with family and work.
