About Alaska

Known as the Last Frontier, Alaska welcomes outdoor lovers to experience unmatched landscapes, wildlife, and coastlines. A vacation here is unlike any other as its vast expanse of land offers the adventure of a lifetime and sights that your family will never forget. Settle in and stay awhile in one of hundreds of Alaska vacation rentals spread throughout this vast state.

Climate

Since Alaska is a large state, it has multiple climate zones, including an oceanic zone in the southeast, a subarctic zone around Anchorage, a subarctic oceanic zone in western Alaska, and an arctic zone in northern Alaska. In Fairbanks, summer temperatures climb to the low 70s, while winter temperatures dip to about 10 below zero. In moderate Anchorage, temperatures top out at 65 in the summer and drop to about 15 in the winter. No matter when you visit, be sure to pack layers since temperatures can change rapidly. Also keep in mind that climate and the hours of darkness during the winter and daylight during the summer can vary greatly depending on when and where you are visiting in the state. 

Areas within Alaska

Families looking for Alaska vacation rentals can choose from places to stay in the state’s four main regions:

  • Southeast Alaska is often referred to as Alaska’s inside passage. This region contains cities, such as Juneau and Sitka.
  • South Central Alaska is the home of Anchorage, a place where tourists will easily find plenty of Alaska vacation rentals. This region includes rivers, rugged coastline, forests, and  glaciers. 
  • The interior of Alaska includes areas such as Denali National Park, Fairbanks, Eielson Air Force Base, and the North Pole. In the Western region you’ll find the Kodiak Islands and Aleutian Islands.
