I'm just starting to sketch out an RV trip for next summer for my family (kids will be 7, 9, and 13). I don't have flights booked, but I'm thinking we'll arrive late (very late our time) on a Friday evening. The next day, we'll pick up the RV, buy groceries, and drive to Talkeetna. I don't want to "book" anything on this day, because I don't want to be committed to a specific time and feel rushed, but I'd like to stop somewhere for an activity or hike en route to Talkeetna. If there aren't any good options, we can plan to do something in Talkeetna when we get there.
After Talkeetna, we are going on to Denali, and I was thinking we'd hike or rent canoes at Byer's Lake on the way. Then our longest drive of the trip will be from Denali to Seward. I'd like to make a stop or two for things to do or see on the way for this drive too. The kids do better if we break up the drive and let them get out to burn up energy periodically.
I'd appreciate your ideas!
