Anchorage — 6 nights

Home to nearly half of Alaska's population, the port city of Anchorage covers a staggering area of over 4,900 sq km (1,900 sq mi) surrounded by mountains.
Step out of Anchorage with an excursion to Boat Tours & Water Sports in Whittier--about 1h 25 min away. Spend the 19th (Tue) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center, steep yourself in history at Oscar Anderson House Museum, tour in style with a train tour, and take an in-depth tour of Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum.

Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from Minneapolis in July, with highs in Anchorage at 69°F and lows at 55°F. On the 21st (Thu), you'll have the morning to explore before heading back home.

The Last Frontier
The country's largest state, Alaska is also its least densely populated. America's final frontier, the state lies on the Arctic Circle and features some of the highest mountains in the United States. Today, several million people flock annually to the state's pristine wilderness areas, which shelter a diverse plant and animal life and offer a great selection of things to do. Tailor-made for adventurous types wishing to leave civilization behind, Alaska can also be an extremely expensive vacation destination, with few transportation options and much of its land accessible only by plane or helicopter.
