Touring Alaska in an RV – The Ultimate Family Vacation January 27, 2016 Ted Palmer Share Alaska has so much to offer adventurous families who want to get out and explore! From wildlife viewing to hiking and fishing, scenic drives and cruises, glaciers and fjords, to rich history and culture, Alaska has everything you need to keep your family active and create a lifetime of memories. The following are some of A&M RV Center’s top tips for RV travel with kids. Getting Around. One of the best ways to discover Alaska is by RV. Whether you own your own or decide to rent a motorhome when you get here, an RV gives you the flexibility to go wherever your family wants to in your home on wheels. Choose the right size RV to accommodate the whole crew so that everyone has their own bit of space. Depending on your family size, that may mean choosing a small, midsize, or even large motorhome. Best time to visit. Deciding when to visit depends on your schedule and what you’d like to see. Mid-May until the middle of September is generally seen as the best time to travel to Alaska, which is nice since it coincides with summer holidays for most children. Where to go. Alaska is by far the largest state so it isn’t likely that you’ll be able to see it all in one trip, even with an RV rental to keep you moving. The state consists of five distinct regions: Inside Passage, Southcentral, Interior, Far North and Southwest. Do some research and choose the region that speaks to you and your family. Include everyone in the planning. Once you’ve chosen a region, get your kids’ input on things they would like to see and do so that each family member feels they have something that is theirs to look forward to. Take advantage of the great resources on the Travel Alaska website or use their app on your smart phone while you’re on the road.
