Alaska driving trip

Jump to last reply

DH and I are thinking of taking a week long trip to Alaska in July. We would fly to Anchorage and rent a car and drive to Homer, Seward, Kenai.

We are in our mid 60s. We "walk" but don't "hike". We like seeing beautiful scenery and wildlife. We also enjoy art, culture, crafts (particularly locally made crafts). We are not interested in camping or roughing it in any way. We like luxury accommodations. A great day for us is walking a nature trail, having a nice lunch, visiting some interesting local attraction (a historic village, for example), then going back to our hotel and enjoying a spa or a movie in our room and a drink and dinner.

Any suggestions? Can we have this type of vacation in Alaska?
