Northwest Travel & Life: Spring Getaway in Ketchikan, Alaska

25 01 2017

I love Alaska, and I’m particularly fond of Ketchikan……but in the spring!? Yep. From the article:

Visit Alaska in spring. Depending on what you’re looking for in a getaway, that’s a sentence that might not pass logical muster the first time around. But narrow the scope to Southeast Alaska—the bridge between the Pacific Northwest and the Great White North. That changes things a bit. And if you’re the type of traveler who prefers to avoid the crowds and the cruise ships, maybe spring starts to look a little more attractive. Perhaps you’re the sort who enjoys a more authentic travel experience coupled with the smaller price tag of a shoulder season. If all of that floats your boat and you don’t mind packing an extra layer and shouldering up to locals for coffee in the morning, then trust me, you want to visit Alaska in the spring. Towards the southern fringe of the Tongass National Forest, just about as southeast as you can get while still being Alaska, sits a personal favorite: Ketchikan.”
