    Why is Alaska part of US?

    Alaska is far away from US and has no boundary with it. But it still is called as the state of USA. Why is this so? I'm confused

    A state does not have to be attached to the rest of the US. The USA purchased Alaska from Russia in the late 1800's. Hawaii is a state as well and is not attached to the mainland.

    As with most national borders, politics and economics rather than simple logic dictate official boundaries. Alaska was purchased from Russia, and while it seems like it would make more sense for it to belong to Canada rather than the United States that isn't how it worked out when our nations were still expanding and defining their borders.

    I never think like that before, i always take it as the people of Alaska doesn't want to be a part of America, but it's basically a big freaking dictate logic.

    Alaska is an amazing state of US and most visited destination of the world. It is my favorite one travel destiantion due to its incredible attractions. I have there about few years ago and had great time there. I explored many fabulous places there and had a lot of experience there. The large number of visitors go there every year to enjoy the holidays. So I will suggest you should go there one. I hope you will fully enjoy there.

    Because Russia sold it to us for a silly price of something like 3 cents an acre. I bet they are kicking themselves now!

    I have read about Russia once in my past through the internet that, It is a basically one of the world’s largest nation, borders European and Asian countries, and gives us many chances to explore the beauty of the place. I have a plan to visit the country on my coming up vacations.

    My father has shared some solid information about Russia with me because ha traveled there about a year ago. He told me that Russia is famous for beaches, forests and Landscapes. Beaches are wide and offer good atmosphere. Lora, I will like to know about your experience in Russia when you will be back from the tour.
