Alaska is the northernmost and westernmost state in the United States. It is the largest state in the US, over twice the size of Texas. The capital city for Alaska is Juneau but the biggest city is Anchorage.
Alaska is a very popular tourist destination with main attractions such as glaciers, scenic scenery as well as unique wildlife such as bears, moose and wolves. The best time to visit Alaska is around June, where one can enjoy the Solstice festivals and 20 hours daylight.
The most popular attraction in Alaska are the magnificent glaciers. The very sight of it is simply breathtaking! There are many glaciers in the Alaskan National Parks. Hubbard Glacier, an active glacier that periodically calves, offers the sight of calving icebergs over the size of 10-storey buildings. Aside from the Hubbard Glacier, Mendenhall Glacier is also very popular. It is located in Auke Bay, Juneau. One can choose to experience the adventure of strapping on a crampon and trek on the glacier itself. It is an experience like no other which offers a great sightseeing adventure!
