Alaska is many things: the land of the midnight sun, home to grizzlies and United States' last frontier. It is the largest (& 49th) state in US bought from the Russians in 1867 for $7.2 million. The Aurora Borealis (northern lights), amazing wildlife, glacier landings and wide variety of breathtaking landscapes will leave you in awe. One can take it easy and enjoy Alaska on a cruise. Another way, maybe a better way is to drive around Alaska and soak in the raw wilderness.
Best time to visit
If you want to see Bears hunting for Salmon go in August, otherwise visit in September for Aurora Borealis.
Alaska is a gorgeous place offering sights and landscapes that are breath-taking.
