Get a feel for what the 49th state has to offer with one of our cheap flights to Alaska. In many ways, this vast state is the last frontier. In fact, The Last Frontier is its official nickname. Very few people who live in the lower 48, as the bulk of the United States is collectively known, ever get a chance to explore this fascinating place. With a flight to Alaska, you can hit the ground running. Whether you choose to fly into Juneau, its capital, or if you fly into Anchorage, its largest city, you'll never run out of things to see and do. After you arrive on a cheap flight to Alaska, be sure to rent a car. The distances in this state are so vast that it's impossible to even scratch the surface without a reliable vehicle. Another exciting and viable option is to book a cruise.
When it comes to planning a trip to what used to be known as "Seward's Folly," Alaska flights are just a tiny part of the equation. Due to the immense size of the state, which is the least densely populated in the union, it's important to zero in on a specific area for your visit. The Kenai Peninsula, which is south of Anchorage, is a nice option. Denali National Park, which is home to Denali or Mount McKinley (the highest peak in North America), is another worthwhile place to spend time. Keep in mind that Alaska is larger than the states of California, Texas and Montana combined, so you can't hope to see every last inch. Plenty of cheap flights to Alaska are available during the summer, so try to visit then so you can experience the midnight sun. It's one of those quintessential Alaskan experiences that is sure to stay with you for a long time.
