Cape Krusenstern National Monument

A must-do for archaeology buffs, this park includes an archaeological district comprising 114 beach ridges along the Chukchi Sea. First named a National Historic Landmark in 1973—one of the largest in the United States—and then declared a national monument in 1978, these shorelines document more than 5,000 years of Inupiat civilization in the region.
