Sumary of 5 Tips for Seeing Alaska on a Budget:
- There’s something pristine and majestic about the vast Alaskan wilderness that draws me, and many others, to it.
- I was actually born in Alaska — in Anchorage, to be exact — but my family moved to the dry desert of south Texas shortly after I was born.
- I don’t remember living in Alaska, but I grew up hearing stories of the moose that walked into the hospital where I was born and of my father working on deep-sea fishing boats.
- But, while I am drawn to the idea of visiting the place where I was born, I’ve been putting it off because trips to Alaska are also notoriously expensive.
- I’m not ready to wipe my savings account for an all-out Alaskan adventure yet, so I’ve been looking for ways to cut down on trip costs instead.
