    With summer vacation almost here, I decided to start looking for a unique place to travel. Tired of the usual beach vacations, my husband and I decided that we would like to go somewhere new this year.

    Not wanting to get our passports renewed, we wanted to stay in the US. And so our search began. Limiting our search to something we have never done before, we decided that we wanted to go make the outdoors a focus on this trip. Not the usual outdoors buffs, with any hiking experience or anything under our belt, we decided that a nature cruise type vacation was just what we needed.

    We decided to go for an Alaska cruise. I researched a ton of boat companies in Alaska and we were set.

    The company we chose is known for sustainable tourism, and after visiting, we know why. The scenery is stunning, and you will see a variety of wildlife, glaciers, and other things not found elsewhere in the US.

    For anyone wanting to vacation somewhere unique this year, I highly recommend an Alaskan cruise. You truly won’t regret it.
