There are many things to do in Alaska. Anchorage, being the "big" city, offers great eats and lots of shopping! But head south to Kenai and see the Alaska you were meant to see. In the summertime, you can walk the beach in Kenai, fish the Kenai River, or take a stroll through the many off-the-beaten-path walkways. There is never a dull moment on the Kenai Peninsula. I grew up there, and if you are an outdoors person, this is the place for you. Hiking, fishing, hunting, coffee--they love coffee here. Every corner offers another place for coffee.
There are endless things to do, and all year long, within a short drive from each other. Driving is a must, and walking is another. Don't forget to take the 70-mile trip to Homer. If you love the water, you will love Homer. Make sure to take a boat tour when in Seward or in Homer; they are the best ways to see the marine life Alaska has to offer.
