First thoughts when we say “Alaska,” and … go!

We’re guessing you came up with things like: cold, snowy and unusual daylight hours. And if any of those things came to mind, you’re right. But this large Northwest state, with an economy rooted in oil, gas, fishing and tourism, has so much to offer that you might want to associate another word with it: home.

For one, Alaska might be the most stunning state in the country. From the wildlife to the glaciers to the endless oceans and untouched wilderness, Alaska is a work of art. And if viewing the Northern Lights is on your bucket list, grab a pen to check it off because Alaskans often have a front-row seat.

As you might have guessed, many of these outdoor attractions allow for some pretty great recreation opportunities – skiing, snowboarding, hiking and backpacking, just to name a few. And keep in mind, it is not always cold here. In fact, during the summer, you can expect gorgeous 70-degree days.  

And if you’re still looking for a little more green, we have you covered – the state doesn’t charge sales tax, which means more money in your pocket.
