In addition to the above information on Alaska:
-You can also get there by boat. The Alaska Marine Highway leaves Seattle area (Bellingham) for most of the Southeast Alaska towns and up towards Anchorage. You can get a stateroom or pitch your tent on the solarium.
- Alaskans are very friendly and will give directions, as indicated in the above description. However, don't expect street names or street numbers. Be prepared for directions such as, "follow this here dirt road for about 5 minutes. Take a hard right after the large spruce tree. In about 4 minutes you will see a large black rock. Turn left here and heep going until..."
-Tourism is one of the main industries in Alaska. If you are looking for a true Alaskan experience, don't get caught up in the tourist traps. Where there are cruise ships, there are tourist traps.
