About the Book

The 49th state is home to magnificent mountains, immense glaciers, and massive stretches of wilderness. Alaska is a unique place where people live in close proximity to the natural world, and where humans and wildlife coexist, albeit very carefully. In 100 Things to Do in Alaska Before You Die, readers will find inspiration for experiences that will draw you to the last Frontier.


Watch a glacier calve thunderously into the sea glacier Bay National Park and Preserve. Spy moose in Denali National Park and Preserve, or trek on sand dunes in Kobuk Valley National Park. Whether your activity of choice is paddling through the quiet, riding a dogsled on top of a glacier, reeling in a trophy halibut, snorkeling, or yoga with reindeer, Alaska is always ready for the adventurous in heart and spirit.


Local travel enthusiasts Fran Golden and Midgi Moore consider this their love letter to Alaska. Come along with them for inspiration for dining, imbibing, and otherwise having a good time in their favorite state.
