Family Vacation - one week in Alaska

Jump to last reply

We are planning an Alaska family vacation for next summer. There will be 16 of us - the oldest being 77 and the youngest 5. Ideally we will try to rent a house, use it as a base and take day trips from there. None of us has been to Alaska before so we are a little clueless as how/where to start. Please help with suggestions.

Basic questions:
- where should our base be?
- What are some of the must-see sites?
- What is the best month go go (June/July August)?
- What are some places we should steer clear of?
