I've been reading on this forum all day and have learned a LOT. I just wanted to get some opinions on my plan.
I'll be graduating college May of 2011 and am wanting to go to either Fairbanks or Anchorage and stay for a few months. I've got a couple questions I hope you fine people will be able to answer.
Should I rent an apartment in Anchorage for my three months? If not what would you recommend? I'm wanting to get the tour of Alaska. I want to be able to see many parts of the huge state, and I realize that picking one place may not be the best way to do this.
Which brings me to my other question, transportation. I know there are buses in the cities, but what if I want to go from Fairbanks to Anchorage? Would it be better to buy a truck? And what about flying? How easy is it to get to Juneau from Fairbanks? Is it terribly expensive?
I'm trying to get as much learned as possible before I set things in stone. It's been a dream of mine since I was little to be able to visit Alaska, and now that I'm close to graduating I'm ready to get the ball rolling on actually going. I honestly cannot wait to go. Thanks for taking the time to read.
