My husband, 5 year old son and myself just got back from a very quick trip to Valdez. It was amazing....so much so that we are already planning a much longer trip for next summer, probably July. We will fly into Anchorage and drive to Fairbanks and then back to Anchorage to come home. I'm looking for info on what places are a must see on our drive. And is there a different route we could take going back to Anchorage to see more? What is our best bet for economical places to stay along the way? Thanks so much!
