If you are visiting Alaska for the first time, the best way to ensure that you will see all the secrets of Alaska including its best sights and up your chances of seeing the most wildlife is by following some of the secrets that only locals or frequent travelers know. This area can be vast so, you really need to have a game plan. These secrets of Alaska can help you get the most out of your time in this beautiful state.

Where To See A Moose

Most travelers really want to be able to see a moose while in Alaska. Sometimes they are easy to spot while other times it seems nearly impossible. Kincaid Park, which is just minutes from Ted Stevens International Airport, is filled with moose roaming about in the 1,400-acre forest. It’s almost impossible to go there and not catch a glimpse of one of these creatures.

Where To Get To Visit The Best Hot Springs

Located around 60 miles from Fairbanks, Cheena Hot Springs is a great place to visit even in the frigid winter months. When it’s 30 below, some brave tourists will still take a dip in the hot springs. This has a lot to do with the fact that the chances of seeing the Northern Lights during this time is as high as 90% so it’s worth it.

What To Eat

Many people don’t realize that Thai food is really popular, especially in Fairbanks. Despite the fact that there are only about 100,000 people living in this city, there are 19 Thai restaurants. Looking for something quick to eat instead? There are also three Thai drive thrus. With this many Thai restaurants in this area, it’s definitely worth stopping for to see what all of the fuss is about.

Where To See Bears And Bison

At times it can be difficult to see bears and bison in Alaska. The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center is a place you must stop at. It’s located only about 40 miles south of Anchorage. This 220-acre facility features a variety of animals that are being rehabilitated or can’t be returned to wildlife. Among them are 3 brown bears and 2 black bears that permanently call the conservation center home.

Where To Learn About The Culture

The Walter Soboleff Center located at the Sealaska Heritage Institute, opened in May 2015 in Juneau. It features exhibits that highlight the rich history of the Haida, Tlinget and Tsimshian native groups of Southeast Alaska. One of the more interesting features here is a replica of a Tlingit clan house that is full sized.
