Alaska on the Go Exploring the Marine Highway with Children

by Erin Kirkland

Alaska on the Go Exploring the Marine Highway with Children Synopsis

Every year, nearly two million tourists visit Alaska, and at least half of them spend time exploring the state's waterways. For families that want to do so in a more independent fashion than a cruise ship or guided tour would allow, Erin Kirkland has written the perfect guide to navigating the state's unique ferry system. A staple of coastal transportation since the 1950s, the Alaska Marine Highway System is a vital link to cities that are often inaccessible except by air. Alaska on the Go offers fascinating accounts of both the small coastal towns and the larger population centers serviced by the highway along with easy-to-navigate route descriptions, helpful packing lists, and tips for inland and onboard adventures. Portable and personable, and covering all thirty routes that make up the Alaska Marine Highway System, Alaska on the Go is the perfect companion for the intrepid traveler.
