Here's what Trippy members had to say about attractions:

"The Anchorage Museum was a memorable attraction and well worth the visit."  See More

"You may have to pick up a few cruisers for this excursion, but most on the boat we took to Tracy Arm Fjord, were land based."  See More

"Ketchikan is the first port on the way up and I'd recommend stopping there if you're interested in getting out to Misty Fjords National Monument (which I strongly recommend you do)."  See More

"When it is clear you can enjoy a view of Mt McKinley (Denali) with your cocktail."  See More

"Alaskan Brewing Company brewed in Juneau is awesome."  See More

"One place that I would personally avoid is the Red Dog Saloon, which is an old-west type bar in town with very expensive drinks."  See More

"Exit Glacier is about a 30 minute drive from Seward."  See More

"When you reach Seward, try the kennel tour Seavey's IdidaRide Sled Dog Tours and hike Exit Glacier Trailhead."  See More

"I agree that Brooks Camp in Katmai National Park is a great place to see the coastal brown bears, but the time of year matters."  See More

"Spend some time exploring Chugach State Park."  See More

"Also, the Anchorage Museum or the Alaska Native Heritage Center will teach you more about the history and culture of the peoples of Alaska than you could ever learn from books."  See More
