Alaska Summer is Almost Over & Now is the Time to Save!

This is my favorite time of year in Alaska. The almost imperceptable trend of shorter days is mingled with changing landscape and a mad rush to squeeze in those last few family trips before (gasp!) school starts and snow flies. I love it. What I love even more is the effort of Alaskan tourism companies […]

A Golden Welcome to Alaska’s Capital City

From the second our Alaska Airlines 737-400 thumped upon the tarmac of Juneau’s airport, the day was shrouded in gray. Gray, but not dismal. Not by a long shot. AK Fam’s two-week land and sea excursion through the scenic Inside Passage area of southeast Alaska began today with our arrival in Alaska’s capital city, Juneau. […]

Wednesday Wrap-Up! K2, Travelgram Show, and More…

Here I go again. Home from Homer, then back on the road to Salt Lake City in the early a.m. I’m off to visit Big AK Kid who is anxiously awaiting a return to Alaska where he’ll make tracks to Fairbanks and his senior year of high school, god willing. So, mom makes her own […]

Wassup Wednesday? Important Dates and Places in Alaska

I’m just not sure if it could possibly get any gloomier and/or chillier outside this morning. Really. Even the flowers are shivering. Wednesday, June 15 is a good day to rehash and regroup during a busy summer, so that’s just what we’re gonna do. Important dates and events to remember, that sort of thing… FIRST: […]

Festive Friday in Alaska

I think today’s post might just as well be titled “Festival Friday” for all the parties going on in celebration of one Alaskan tradition or another. That’s the great thing about summer in the 49th state; our window for festivities is so narrow, we know we’d better cram them in while we can. In fact, […]

Jet Blue Arrives in the North!

Wait, I can almost see it from here; a pretty white plane with a blue tail waving madly from the sky. Today is the day jetBlue arrives in Alaska and adds itself to the list of carriers willing to transport people and goods to and from the 49th state. AK Fam is packed and ready […]

We’re Ready for JetBlue and the Magic Kingdom, But We Need YOU!

It’s nearly here, AKontheGO’ers. May 23, when the pretty white planes with blue tails arrive and set Anchorage on fire with great deals to points south. JetBlue was kind enough to offer AK Fam a few seats, and away we’ll go on that inaugural flight, headed to Long Beach, CA. As we’ve mentioned on the […]

Fun Friday Rocks for Celebrating Mothers and Spring

There is so much information to share today regarding the upcoming Mother’s Day weekend of special events, activities, and outdoor fun that we’re going to take a different tack; instead of listing events by day, we’re going to list by category, giving your family a chance to choose by interest. It goes without saying, however, […]
