Alaska — Native arts. Mammoth glaciers. Arctic wildlife. Frontier quirk. Alaska, the 49th state, sprawls over some 571,951 square miles of terrain that includes misty fjords, colossal glaciers, temperate rain forests, sprawling tundra, and a sprinkling of charming towns and cities. For lovers of the great outdoors, it’s a destination without rival.

Why Go

For America’s “last frontier” and its heralded pristine wilderness, jaw-dropping scenery, and laid-back cities.
