Most visitors remember Mat-Su Valley by a unique blend of alpine scenery and Midwestern farming communities--prepare to be struck by the size of the vegetables that grow on this fertile farmland. Opportunities for outdoor adventures abound, including scenic flights and expeditions to Denali, North America's tallest peak. Oozing a 1930s ambience, the downtown of Palmer takes you back to the time when the settlers from the Midwest came here as part of a New Deal relief program. Talkeetna takes you even farther back, to the turn of the 20th century when this tiny hamlet was a thriving gold-mining center. A classified National Historic Site, its downtown features dirt streets lined with log cabins and clapboard storefronts. Wherever your Mat-Su Valley trip may lead you, make sure to bring a camera for a poster-worthy shot of the area's beautiful landscapes.
