Kenai River Fly Fishing (Cooper Landing)

Fly fishing for salmon on the Kenai river was one of the highlights of our entire trip. The only way I can describe being out on the river, at one with nature, is complete nirvana! It was not only a fun experience, but I felt as if my spiritual batteries had been recharged. It was an extremely special activity that my kids and I will never forget and one that I can't recommend highly enough if you get the chance to … [Read more...]

Kingfisher Roadhouse (Cooper Landing)

After an afternoon fly fishing on the Kenai river we asked our guide TJ where was the best place to eat in town. He rattled off a few names that he said were really good, but when he mentioned the Kingfisher Roadhouse his eyes lit up and waxed poetic about a burger that sounded off the charts fantastic. Well, as soon and we loaded up, we made a bee line straightaway.  At night this place apparently gets absolutely … [Read more...]

Alaska Sea Life Center (Seward)

As traveling explorers, our mission was to learn and understand all about Alaska,-it's history, resources, culture and economy, and the Alaska Sea Life Center was a great opportunity to do just that. A large part of Alaska's economy involves the catching and processing of a variety of fish and seafood that is sold to local, domestic and international markets. We very often take for granted the food that ends up on … [Read more...]
