    Has anyone ever been to Alaska?

    And what is it like there? Is it really only sunny for 6 months of the year?

    Re: Has anyone ever been to Alaska?

    No, but I want to go so bad. There are certainly parts of Alaska that has a "midnight sun" for eighty something days in the summer. In the winter, they don't see the sun for a few months as well, or only for a few hours a day. I think it depends on location as in correlation to the poles.

    I want to see aurora borealis!

    Not personally, but a cousin of mine works as a fisherman over there... he does there once a year and stays there for months (I think). He doesn't talk a lot about this, so I really don't know what his work is like over there. He doesn't have a lot chances to visit the cities over there tho, because his trips are strictly for work.

    I went years and years ago...it was mid-winter but actually unseasonably bright and sunny. There's just such a different, serene feeling out there....I would definitely recommend it.

    Like MizzDeeDee I want to go for the Aurora in particular.

    I'm sure there are other things that I would enjoy once there, but that's the main attraction for me

    I would love to go for all the reasons mentioned. I can imagine it is clean, crisp and scenic. I have also been told to combine an Alaskan cruise ship with an on land stay. I think there may also be a train trip up through Canada, and I love trains. With so many ways to and from Alaska, I so want to go and take it all in.

    Beautiful Alaska

    I never been there, but I heard so much about how beautiful Alaska is. I saw pictures in the internet. I want to see it personally. I want to go there and take a cruise. I guess, that will be a great experience. I also want to experience how cold is alaska.

    Why Everyone should visit Alaska

    I have not been to Alaska, but I would like to visit there someday. I have heard it can get very cold in Winter. I like Winter, which it is not gonna be a big problem for me if I go to Alaska during the wintertime.

    Re: Has anyone ever been to Alaska?

    We went to Alaska this summer. We took a cruise out of Vancouver. We ported in Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan. Alaska is absolutely breathtaking. Everything is so lush and green. The Mendenhall glacier left me speechless. It is incredible to see land that has been untouched by humans, pure. I am not sure about the sunset/sunrise patterns in Alaska, but I can tell you that when we went, at the end of June, sunset was around 10 pm and sunrise was around 3 in the morning. If you ever get the chance to go, I would highly recommend it. It is the most amazing place I have ever visited.

    Re: Has anyone ever been to Alaska?

    Dolson910 those are good words to describe Alaska, lush and green. We have a family friend who lives in Anchorage and he positively loves it there. We visited him last year and he happily showed us the sights. Aside from the great outdoors which you can experience at The Tony Knowles Coastal trail, Chugach state and Kincaid parks there are also very interesting museums. The Alaska native heritage center, Anchorage and Aviation museums are must see places. If your kids love animals then then they have a really nice zoo and train enthusiasts can pass by the Alaska railroad. Enjoy!

    Re: Has anyone ever been to Alaska?

    Hi. I am in Alaska. Temperatures in Alaska during the summer range from 60F-80F. Night time and early mornings are cooler, from the 40's - 50's. Late August and September departures could encounter cooler temperatures and slightly fewer hours of sunlight, as fall arrives early at these latitudes.

    I have not been but would really like to go. I have been watching the Alaska reality shows and its seems like such a serene, untouched place and I am sure there are beautiful sights there. I will study up on the timing though since I am sure the weather can get harsh but I still think it would be worth the trip.

    It surely has all those elements that can be taken ahead and also maid of the mist niagara falls ny keeps it all reasonable for many factors with us.

    I have a plan to go to Alaska with my whole family at the end of December in 2015. I will stay there for four days. I want to explore its historical places. You would like to share the names of some most visited attractions of this region. I am waiting for your reply?
