  • Destination for anniversary trip

    Hey Alaskan Glasplygians, I'm looking for a little advice. My wife and I are celebrating out 20th anniversary this year and I'm trying to come up with a good 4-5 day trip and am thinking Alaska might be a good option. It looks like Anchorage may be the easiest to fly in to with stuff to do fairly close. We would be interested in general sightseeing, a day fishing on a charter, and maybe another day on a tour. Whittier looks like it might be a viable destination. Not trying to do it on a shoestring budget but don't want to get too extravagant. Suggestions?

    Never been to Alaska, Arne, but apparently a number of Forum members have -- or actually live there! Hope you and your wife have a fantastic time, no matter what you do.

      Arne,
      Huge State. Would take many trips to see it all. Options: Cruise from Seattle or Vancouver BC. Fly to Anchorage and take Alaska railroad to Fairbanks. You can charter a float plane out of Anchorage and be in great fishing territory within an hour.
      Southeast Alaska towns are smaller and along the Coast, accessible by air or boat.
      if you get to Fairbanks check out AKGramps (John) redesigned and rebuilt and if my memory is correct has your old motor for power.
      Wherever you go, you will never forget the place.
      The cruise liner QE2 moves only six inches for each gallon of diesel fuel that it burns.

        I ended up booking flights and lodging in Ketchikan. We don't have time this year to do a real Alaska experience trip. It's more of a long weekend at the coast kind of thing but I figured I should upgrade from the Oregon coast for our 20th. Someday we'll get up there and spend a couple of weeks visiting more remote areas and maybe get up to see John and my old Glasply powerplant.
