We, (My husband and I, no kids) have decided to take a vacation mid-May. The where to go part is tough but Alaska is way up near the top of the list. It would be for 1 week. Leaving from San Diego, CA. The problem is, Alaska has so much to offer, and is huge. We have no idea where to start planning or looking.
What we're most interested in: Bears, Wildlife, Whales, Glaciers, History, Volcanoes, rafting (No experience).
Not interested in: Fishing or being shuffled around in large groups, cruise ships, moving locations more then twice (If possible) as we don't want it to feel rushed or stressful by having to change lodgings every couple days to do things.
The budget is not huge, 3500-3800, but that also includes spending money while there. Not sure what it's like there in May, but moving it around isn't an option.
