    Default Alaska but not a cruise?

    Anyone done an Alaska vacation but not part of a cruise? Cruises arenít on the table for me as I get seasick on any type of watercraft. (Iím sure I could keep experimenting with meds but dh isnít interested in cruises either so they really are off the table though Iím sure theyíre great!). Everyone I know who has done Alaska has taken a cruise so Iím casting a net here for maybe some advice and itineraries. Thank you!

    Yes! It was quite a while ago (maybe 15 years?). We flew into Anchorage and stayed for a few nights then went to some adorable cottages near Denali for a few days. We did several trips into the park to spot animals, listen to ranger talks etc. and also did some rafting outside the park. After that we drove down near Wasilla to visit a sled dog kennel. Then we stayed for a few days near Seward along the coast and did some excursions to see a glacier, a boat trip etc. It felt like we drove all over but really it wasn’t all that much of Alaska. I’d go back in a heartbeat. I need to plan a trip with our kids that weren’t born yet for the last visit.

    I took bonine and wore a patch the entire 7 days. . I started feeling seasick about 10 min after we boarded the ship. I was fine with bonine and the patch.

    We spent 4 days on land after our cruise. Mostly in Seward. But you could totally do Denali, Seward, and some other places too. We really loved Juneau (we rented a car and did our own excursions).

    Thank you!
    I'm glad to know it's doable to just cobble together a driving vacation. Ds2 has visions of living up there when he grows up so he should probably see it some time.
