Alaska Travel Ideas For Gift Giving


Just saw this as posted by travelalaska.com and thought it provided a great idea:

GIVE THE GIFT OF ALASKA THIS YEAR
This holiday season, consider giving your loved ones the gift of an unforgettable experience—Alaska. The Last Frontier offers a variety of vacation options for every interest, and at any time of year. Consider a cruise package—many companies offer early booking deals—for the family or that special someone who has always dreamed of venturing north. Alaska's Native culture coupled with gold rush and World War II history is sure to astound and delight any history buff, while adventure seekers will find a lot to keep their heart pumping, like bear-viewing or a trip down the world's longest zip line. A host of family-friendly activities are perfect for a vacation with the kids from national forests to dog mushing or even a visit to Christmas headquarters in North Pole. So make your list, and give the present that truly keeps giving: a lifetime of memories from a trip to Alaska.

Now is the time to peruse the Anchorage Area Bed and Breakfast options - including B&Bs on the Hillside with its views, down Turnagain Arm with its Beluga whales, or up in Eagle River (I have seen lynx there, along with moose and bear). Nothing is far from Anchorage's downtown!  This listing  (AABBA) includes only those B&Bs that have passed the annual peer reivew (more in-depth than regulatory requirements by a long shot!)  You can view pictures, check their calendars, and even make reservations on line.  The Association also has a Hotline so that if you want to talk to someone in Anchorage, you can discuss your needs with someone at 907-272-5909 (office hours for  -9.00 GMT or Alaska Time).
