Whether you are in the mood to kayak through a valley of glaciers or you’d rather have a fine dining experience of fresh Alaskan seafood, the tourist town of Girdwood is one of the best places to visit. The vacation destination is favored by nature lovers as there’s so much to see, such as mountains, glaciers, glacier valleys, rivers, and rainforests. The following are just a few of the things you can do.
Ride the Tram. Enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of the area with a ride on the Alyeska Resort Aerial Tramway, in just seven minutes, you’ll be transported high up to take in a stunning vista of mountains, hanging glaciers, and more. At the top, you'll have the option to explore the trails or grab a bite to eat at the casual Bore Tide Deli or the upscale Seven Glaciers Restaurant. If you are looking for a workout, you can hike the North Face Trail from the base of the mountain, and then rest your tired legs by riding the tram back down the mountain.
Pan for Gold. Great for the whole family, the Crow Creek Mine is an old-school mine that lets you pan for gold and tour the historic buildings (some are even on the National Registry of Historical Places) in a gorgeous setting with amazing views. And, you get to keep whatever gold you find. There’s a free shuttle, through Glacier Valley Transit, which is great for anyone staying at Alyeska Hotel or other small B and Bs, or vacation rentals near downtown Girdwood. And, they host evening salmon bakes and live music on specific nights during the summer.
