One week in Alaska

Jump to last reply

We're heading to Anchorage for a wedding this August. We're planning to spend a day at the State Fair on Sunday (day after the wedding) then head to Denali the following day. It's all up in the air from there.

Is there anything to do between Palmer and Denali on Monday? We'd be driving toward Denali so that we could enter the park Tuesday morning.

Is one day in Denali enough, or should we plan on more than one day?

And how should we spend the remaining few days? We haven't decided when to head home yet. The main factor is the cost of a rental car and hotel nights--this is going to have to be a budget trip. Is it worth it to consider going down to the Kenai Peninsula, or should we just spend a day or two around Anchorage? I'd love to see some orcas and/or belugas, but we also want to be able to relax and not be driving constantly.

Thanks for your help!
