Today’s question for comment: What are your favorite Alaska places to share with a child or with visitors?


  1. I am FB friends with authors from ALaska. I would love to read how you raised your sons in Alaska. I read Dana Stabenow's books and love to know Alaska history through books and pictures. I am from Down Under in Tennessee.

  2. I love Thompson Pass near Valdez. Alpine tundra is my favorite biome.

  3. We always go to the Wildlife Conservation Center in Portage. And, there is the Kenai Fijords marine tours, which gives you views of the glaciers and all sorts of marine wildlife. Don't forget Denali and Talkeetna and Fairbanks. BUT, my most favorite place to take my grown daughter was Barrow! Renee Downs
