Talkeetna, Alaska

Talkeetna, Alaska

Looking for a town with a flavor of the Northern Exposure television series? Take the turnoff to Talkeetna located in upper Susitna Valley. This historic hamlet serves as a staging area for mountain climbers planning to ascend Mt. McKinley. In addition, it offers visitors outstanding fishing opportunities, flightseeing, and river rafting. On clear days, the views of Mount McKinley could not be more dramatic.

On winter trips, go cross-country skiing, snowmachining, or take a dogsledding trip on the famous Iditarod Trail. In summer, hike spectacular alpine meadows at Hatcher Pass, pick wild blueberries near Independence Mine, then explore the abandoned and partially restored gold mine, now a state park.

At day?s end, re-live highlights with your host at a Mat-Su bed and breakfast, relax in a hotel Jacuzzi, swap experiences with RV park neighbors, or camp beside a burbling brook. Accommodations in the Mat-Su Valley range from lakeside resorts and country inns to vacation apartments and remote mountain lodges. With so much to see and do, you?ll want to spend several days in the Mat-Su!
