Do you currently have a travel bucket list filled with destinations you want to visit? Are you ready to start checking those destinations off with your family? Well, why not start with a family vacation in Alaska! You can do a road trip in Alaska. Or you may decide to cruise around Alaska. Honestly, the options are endless. I can help you figure it out, as I am personalizing your family trip to Alaska. To help you get started, let me share a few of the best Alaska bucket list destinations with you.
You really can’t miss Anchorage when you are on a family vacation in Alaska. Most of the time, you will find yourself in this city after your flight or while on a cruise.
This city is full of museums, stores, and cultural exhibits. And yet, you may also spot a moose and other wildlife walking right down the streets in Anchorage. It’s a great reminder of how close you really are to nature in this beautiful state.
Talkeetna is a small town in Alaska that often gets overlooked. This is a wonderful destination for fishing and whitewater rafting.
Another option is to take a flight over Denali. These flights are amazing and allow you to see Denali from a different vantage point.
There are so many things to see and do while visiting Denali National Park. Hiking will allow you to see part of this park. However, if you want to see as much as possible, I recommend hopping on the tour bus or doing a Jeep excursion.
Those will both allow you to cover at least one hundred miles of this park. During your tour, you will see the best of Denali. This includes glaciers, wildlife, and so much more.
Seward is one of the best places to see glaciers in Alaska. Head out on a boat tour to see at least one glacier. The good news is you will also have ample opportunities to see humpback whales, puffins, sea otters, and other marine life while on the boat.
Back on land, you can stop at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. They take care of animals who have been injured and cannot be released back into the wild. During your visit, you can see moose, musk ox, bears, porcupines, bison, wolves, and other animals.
The Kenai River is one of the best places to go fishing in Alaska. It is also where you can watch the Salmon Fishing Run. While on the banks of the Kenai River, you must keep an eye out for wildlife. You never know when a moose or bear will join you down by the river.
After your fishing adventures, head to the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge for a hike. Or go to the Soldotna Historical Museum to see vintage log cabins.
These are the best Alaska bucket list destinations for your next family vacation. I can easily add other Alaskan destinations to your itinerary. So, let me know where you want to explore during this family trip. Here is a sample 8-day Alaskan itinerary to check out as inspiration.
