Alaska Hotel Reservations
Summertime is Alaska brings meaning to the nickname "the Land of the Midnight Sun." Long days mean adventures almost never stop in Alaska's countless parks and outdoor destinations, and communities from Juneau to Anchorage to Fairbanks welcome this season's visitors with more special events, festivals, and family-friendly activities than any other time of year.
Fairbanks invites residents and visitors to awaken their inner artist July 13th through 27th at the 2016 Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival. Enjoy events including the Pioneer Potpourri at Davis Concert Hall, American Roots at Silver Gulch, and the Festival Chamber Orchestra at the Denali Park Visitors Center.

Valdez is just one of many gateways to Alaska's outdoor frontiers. Located in Prince William Sound on the north shore of the Port of Valdez, the town is surrounded by adventure lands including the Cugach Mountains, Copper River Valley, and the waters of the sound. In the heart of Alaska, Valdez was the historic gateway to the Klondike Gold Fields and is also the southern terminus of the Alaska pipeline. Summer visitors don't miss a visit to the Columbia Glacier, the largest tidewater glacier in the region.
The City of Kodiak is the hub of commerce and activity for Alaska's Kodiak Island Archipelago and its six villages.

For a traditional Fourth of July festivities, Kodiak celebrates with a parade and backyard BBQ gatherings.
Seward celebrates Independence Day hosting the Mount Marathon Race, not quite a marathon distance but still a big challenge for runners with course to the top of Mount Marathon and back down.
