Alaska
Welcome to my completely unorganized but oh-so-helpful map of Alaska! An absolute smorgasbord of my own travels and research, suggestions from friends and strangers, and many treasures found along the way, this is where I compile all things Alaska for my future trips and yours. Things I particularly love that youโ€™ll find a lot of: โ˜•๏ธ Coffee shops & bakeries ๐ŸŒฎ Local cuisine ๐Ÿ›๏ธ Museums of all kinds ๐ŸŒณ Gardens & parks ๐Ÿ›๏ธ Boutique hotels ๐Ÿ• Small regional chains with good reputations All my guides in this category are $5 per 100 places included, but since I add to these constantly, you can lock down the lowest price today and gain a lifetime access!
