Valdez (keystone canyon falls)? Matanuska? and other itinerary help

Jump to last reply

-Is there what to do in valdez besides keystone canyon falls- is it worth making the 6 hour round trip from matanuska glacier in palmer, alaska, just to see the falls?

-are the roads all paved to valdez, is there a ferry i need to take? or can we just drive the whole way?

-Also is matanuska glacier a worthwhile stop considering the itinerary below, or is it just another glacier? (we plan on seeing other glaciers too)

-so far this is our itinerary:
from anchorage drive to seward. take the kenai fjords cruise there. which company cruise tour do you suggest? OR from anchorage just drive to whittier and take the prince william sound cruise. is the drive from whittier to seward nice?
then from seward drive to palmer to matanuska glacier. what to do here besides walk on the glacier? would you recommend it?
then from matanuska to valdez (possibly if we have time) to the keystone canyon falls. would you recommend it?
then from valdez to denali np
from denali back to anchorage.

Are all the roads paved on this itinerary? I know that in denali np at a certain point you have to take the shuttle bus because they dont allow cars.

can we rely on mapquest for approximate distance travel times, or do some routes take much longer?

If we're short on time, is there anything we can cut out of our itinerary that is either similar to something else on our itinerary or is not necessary and not a "must see?"
The most important thing we're interested in is scenery not wildlife and animals.
We're trying to keep this as least expensive as possible. any hotel/motel recommendations with private bathrooms along the route would be appreciated.

any tips on keeping this as least expensive as possbile? thanks in advance
