Map ofJuneauu Alaska

Juneau is a capital of contrasts and conflicts. It borders a waterway that never freezes but lies beneath an ice field that never melts. It was the first community in the Southeast to slap a head tax on cruise ship passengers but draws more of them (almost a million) than any other town. It’s the state capital but since the 1980s Alaskans have been trying to move it. It doesn’t have any roads that go anywhere, but half its residents and its mayor opposed a plan to build one that would. It is America’s strongest state capital. In the winter, it’s a beehive of legislators, their loyal aides, and lobbyists locked in political struggles. It’s the most geographically secluded state capital in the country, the only one that cannot be reached by car – only boat or plane.

But Juneau is also the most beautiful city in Alaska and arguably the nation’s most scenic capital. The city center, which hugs the side of Mt Juneau and Mt Roberts, is a maze of narrow streets running past a mix of new structures, old storefronts and slanted houses, all held together by a network of staircases. The waterfront is bustling with cruise ships, fishing boats and floatplanes buzzing in and out. High above the city is the Juneau Ice Field, covering the Coastal Range and sending glaciers down between the mountains like marshmallow syrup on a sundae.

Map of Anchorage Alaska

Anchorage was established in 1914 as a railroad construction port for the Alaska Railroad, which was built between 1915 and 1923. Ship Creek Landing, where the railroad headquarters was located, quickly became a tent city; Anchorage was incorporated on November 23, 1920. The city’s economy in the 1920s centered around the railroad.

In 1968, oil was discovered in Prudhoe Bay, and the resulting oil boom spurred further growth in Anchorage. In 1975, Anchorage merged with Eagle River, Girdwood, Glen Alps, and several other communities. The merger expanded the city, known officially as the Municipality of Anchorage. The city continued to grow in the 1980s, and capital projects and an aggressive beautification campaign took place.

Map of Sitka Alaska

For the seekers of treasures, natural, cultural and historical, Sitka is that treasure island. With views of island-studded waters and stately spruce forests reaching to the water’s edge, Sitka is considered Alaska’s most beautiful sea side town.  Yet Sitka’s hallmark is its tenure and devotion to a culturally diverse past. Sitka has the distinctive character of a place that has been settled for thousands of years.  These ancient lands, home to the Tlingit Indians, celebrated their life and culture long before Russians or Americans walked on the rocky shores and today Tlingit living culture is deeply rooted in this small seaside city.

Visitors will always find the bounty they are looking for, which is inseparable from the people.  It is Sitka’s citizens who will make you feel at home, who will appease your curiosity, and give you cause to remember your journey to a real treasure island.

Map of Wasilla Alaska

Wasilla, Alaska is 28 miles N of Anchorage, Alaska. The city is in the Matanuska Susitna County. Approximately 5,469 people live in Wasilla. Wasilla was established in 1917 with the construction of the Alaska Railroad. The Matanuska-Susitna valley was first settled by the Dena’ina Alaska natives. Russians settled in Alaska from the year 1741 until 1867, when Alaska was sold to the United States. In 1880, the town of Knik settled close to the source of the Matanuska river. When the U.S. government was laying out the Alaska Road, Knik residents purchased plates and the town dwindled. Thus, Wasilla Station emerged and was named after Wasilla Creek. Wasilla was actually the name of a Dena’ina chief. The city of Wasilla was incorporated in the year 1974.

Wasilla has many tourist attractions including the Dorothy G Page Museum, Wasilla-Knik-Willow Creek Historical Society, and Alaska Museum of Transportation and Industry. Book lovers will enjoy the Wasilla Public Library. A visit to the amusement park called Forward Amusement Co. is always a thrilling experience. The city also organizes the annual Oktoberfest.

Map of Fairbanks Alaska

Fairbanks is the land of the Northern Lights. The only thing that constitutes a ‘city’ in interior Alaska, Fairbanks often feels more like a crossroads than a conventional metropolis. But at the nexus of some truly epic routes –north to the Arctic, east to Canada and south to Denali – the mix of people in this once-rough-and-ready gold-rush town is rarely boring. Stay long enough and you’ll meet the cross-continental cyclist who’s pedaled up from Tierra del Fuego.

Fairbanks isn’t particularly pretty – its ‘downtown’ is soporific and, in the rest of the city, the local businesses lie clustered around dull strung-out strip malls. If you come during the frigid winter, Fairbanks is the start or end point of the Yukon Quest 1000-mile dogsled race and ground zero for viewing the aurora borealis

Map of Kenai Alaska

Kenai is the largest community on the Kenai Peninsula with a population of around 7,000. The city sits on a low rise overlooking the mouth of the Kenai River. To the west, majestic views of the Alaska Range and three active volcanoes, Mount Spurr, Mount Iliamna and Mount Redoubt, make for a dramatic backdrop.

Today Alaska’s largest concentration of oil infrastructure outside of Prudhoe Bay in just outside of Kenai; out in nearby Cook Inlet, 15 offshore oil platforms pump out 42,000 barrels a day. There are few signs of oil production in Kenai itself and none along the Kenai River often referred to as one of the greatest sport fishing rivers in the world.
