Prudhoe Bay

Most towns have museums that chronicle local history and achievements. Deadhorse is the town anchoring life along Prudhoe Bay, but it could also serve as a museum dedicated to humankind's hunt for energy and its ability to adapt to harsh conditions to capture that energy.

The costly, much-publicized Arctic oil and gas project is complex and varied. Visitors can survey oil wells, stations, and oil-company residential complexes—small cities themselves—and might get the chance to spot caribou and wildflowers.
