Best places to visit in Alaska: discover the Top destinations of Alaska  

HeaderPageTitle-GetPartialViewNoCache = 0

Alaska Natives, American Indians and non-Hispanic whites make up more than 65% of the population. The state is one of the wealthiest and racially diverse states, and the Alaskan Natives make it a point to celebrate their heritage as ‘Alaska’s First People’.

This rich cultural heritage can be explored in depth at the Alaska Native Heritage Centre which also encourages cross-cultural exchanges. In Anchorage, one can come across attractions like the Alaska Centre for the Performing Arts (a popular venue for art events) and the Alaska Zoo in Anchorage Hillside which attracts nearly 200,000 visitors annually. Experience unmatched views aboard the Alaska Railroad (the largest passenger glass-domed railcars in the world) or join hikers from around the world atop Mount Mckinley, the largest mountain on the continent.

Ceremonial feasts are an integral part of the Native culture and this can be witnessed at the Messenger Feast of the Inupiaq which is held in community houses (called Qasgiqs) in late fall or early winter. Famous annual events include the World Ice Art Championships at Fairbanks and the Sitka Whale Fest. Music festivals like the Alaska Folk Festival, the Sitka Summer Music Festival and the Fairbanks Winter Music Fest are also well-established.
