Making your way to Seattle-Tacoma International
Even though it is one of America’s busiest, this big airport is also a favorite for many travelers. The layout is smart and the underground people mover system is fast, which makes it easy to get around. The airport’s large central terminal has four concourses, A, B, C, and D, and there are two satellite terminals, a North and a South. The amenities here also get high marks, with free WiFi, a generous amount of power points, and even the occasional live concert. If you’re bringing your pet along for the trip, you can take advantage of several pet relief areas.
Getting to SEA by public transportation is actually an easy option, and extremely affordable. The Link Light Rail connects directly to the airport, running every 7.5 to 15 minutes between the hours of 5:00 am and 1:00 am. If you want to go even greener (and don’t have too much luggage) you can also cycle to the airport, and there’s plenty of secure bike parking, including indoor and outdoor options as well as long-term storage. For anyone who plans to travel with their bike, the dedicated bike assembly/disassembly station will come in handy.
Arriving in Anchorage
It’s not the official capital of Alaska, but Anchorage is the massive state’s leading city in many ways. It’s home to a massive 40 percent of Alaska’s population, and acts as the cultural and financial center. It’s got the kinds of facilities and attractions you’d expect from any major US city, but it’s not the reason most people come here.
Surrounding the city are some of the world’s most pristine landscapes that can send true shivers down your spine, even in the summer months. Many come to enjoy an “Alaskan Safari” of wildlife-watching, from grizzly bears to rare bird species. Others come to marvel at the northern lights on a clear, bitterly cold night in the mountains, or to trek across the stark beauty of the fjords. The hiking, fishing, skiing and general adventuring on offer here is like nothing else in the world.
