Salmon Capital of the World

Ketchikan is known for wildlife, historic sites, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: cast your line with a fishing tour, immerse yourself in nature at Totem Bight State Historical Park, contemplate the long history of Totem Heritage Center, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Deer Mountain Trail.

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.
