Alaska Vacation Rentals, Homes, & More
When to Visit
The best time to book one of our available Alaska vacation rentals is during the months between May and September. During this period you and your family will enjoy longer days and can appreciate the beauty of Alaska to its fullest. Most of the tours run during this period, and the days are longer, with the longest day falling in June. There are many statewide and local events held throughout the year, including, but not limited to the following:
- The Festival of the North - A month long event in February in Ketchikan that includes performances, entertainment, and a wearable art show.
- The Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race - Also in February, this is a one thousand mile dog sled race that begins in Fairbanks, Alaska.
- Whale Fest Kodiak - a ten-day festival celebrating the return of the Eastern Pacific Grey Whales to local waters.
- The Alaskan State Fair - In August, enjoy concerts, attractions, rides, and much more at the fair.
