Best Family Cities to Visit in Alaska

If you're thinking of a vacation in stunning natural surroundings, but want to share the joy with kids, Alaska is well worth considering. And there are a few family-friendly cities that are just waiting for your arrival. Here are some favorites:

  • Anchorage

    Alaska's biggest city is also it's best family destination. The Discovery Center is built for inquisitive kids, with hands-on displays, the Inupiaq​ House at the Native Heritage Center provides an educational experience, while the Aviation Museum's simulator offers thrills for all ages.

  • Juneau

    The state capital is also great to explore with kids - as well as the local area. For instance, where else can you take bus tours to Mendenhall Glacier, and be back in town for ribs for dinner? Last Chance Mining Museum also goes all-out to show kids what life was like during the Gold Rush.

  • Fairbanks

    Few family destinations are as "cool" as Fairbanks, where kids will love plunging down ice slides or wandering around ice-sculpted wonderlands. In the summer season, it's also a great place to arrange dog-sled tours, while the Tanana Valley State Fair is one of Alaska's best family events.

Kid-Friendly Beaches in Alaska

Kid-Friendly Beaches in Alaska

There are also some fantastic coastal attractions for families to think about. Check out our list of kid-friendly beaches where all the family can have fun.

  • Kincaid Beach

    Really close to central Anchorage, Kincaid has acres of pure sand, along with majestic views of the Cook Inlet. When the summer temperatures are at their peak, it's the perfect scenic spot to swim, walk dogs, or hunt for driftwood and other flotsam.

  • Black Sand Beach

    As the name suggests, Black Sand Beach isn't a classic white sand beach. But it offers something better - the chance to start kayaking adventures in Prince William Sound. Suitable for accommodating campers and with classes for kids, it's a great outdoor destination.

  • Schooner Beach

    A cult destination among Alaska's surfing community, Schooner Beach near Yakutat​ is backed by the soaring bulk of Mount Elias, which is a pretty inspiring setting. Kids can paddle or bodyboard, while teens will love the roaring surf, which pounds in from the Pacific.

  • Settlers Cove

    Shielded from currents and wind, Settlers Cove near Ketchikan​ is ideal for small kids. The drive and short walk through the pristine boreal rainforest is a delight, while the beach is great for summer swimming. And it's also fairly secluded, so don't expect massive crowds.
