America's Largest Capital Area

Juneau is an unusual state capital in many respects.
Take a break from the city and head to Eagle Beach and Perseverance National Recreation Trail. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Photography Tours and Best Damn Charters. There's still lots to do: indulge your thirst for a good beer at Alaskan Brewery and Bottling Company, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at DIPAC's Macaulay Salmon Hatchery, and trek along Mount Roberts 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.
