Trends / Unique Itineraries & Tours

There’s no better way to explore Alaska than along the world-famous Alaska Railroad. The tracks will cover ground from Anchorage to Fairbanks along the Alaska Mountain Range, where you’ll sightsee some of the most magnificent landscape and wildlife North America has to offer.

 

The Go Alaska Tours trip begins in Anchorage, where you’ll spend your first day leisurely strolling around town. The area is home to Earthquake Park and the Coastal Trail in case you enjoy a nice hike. If you come in February or March, the city plays host to famous events like the Fur Rendezvous and the Iditarod Sled Dog Race.

 

On day two, prepare for a relaxing ride along the Alaska Railroad on your way to Fairbanks. Stopovers include Denali National Park along with views of Mt. McKinley.

 

Once you’ve arrived, you’re set to spend two days basking in heaven at Chena Hot Springs Resort. Your time here will include trips to see the Northern Lights, an exploration of the artifacts on display at the University of Alaska and a visit to a Mongolian yurt.

 

The Chena Hot Springs Resort is surrounded by 440 acres of the breathtaking wilderness Alaska is known for and there are no shortage of outdoor pursuits to explore. Hike, ski or snowmobile around and explore before hopping the train back on your final day.

Top Lightweight Coats for Spring

As spring comes around in full force, people opt for a lighter coat that can protect them from the wind and rain of the season. In the beginning, there are still cold days to get through, but, as the weather shifts, it becomes more unpredictable with bouts of rain and sunshine. This unpredictable weather can make it hard to know how to dress properly, but it’s always a safe bet to own a couple light and versatile jackets to get through the season. Lightweight coats don’t need to be expensive to be effective. Many buyers will opt to buy less expensive coats because they don’t get used often. However, any coat purchased for spring weather will also be useful in the fall.

Traditional Irish Food

Contrary to popular belief, corned beef and cabbage is not a traditional Irish meal. This was what the Irish in America ate because it was all they could afford at the time. From this, it evolved into the staple meal of Irish holidays like St. Patrick’s Day. While it is still a great meal to eat and is relevant, for those looking to have an authentic Irish feast, there are some more traditional dishes.
