Here are the top ten articles for the Alaska Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!
1. Oceans and Seas of Alaska
The coastline of the state of Alaska, including islands, bays, fjords and open ocean shores, stretches for over 44,000 miles. To put this into perspective; if someone were to walk one thousand miles per year, it would take more than forty-four YEARS to hike Alaska’s entire coastline.
2. Tourism Season
From the first of May to about the third week in September, Alaska adds over 1.5 million people to its shores. So where do you begin? Alaska has so many opportunities to enjoy its history, beauty and rich culture, how can you possibly narrow down all of the choices?
3. State Fairs of Alaska
Alaska is so big it has FOUR State Fairs to give residents a chance to attend one! In a state over twice the size of Texas, multiple state fairs are the best way to solve distance and accessibility problems. State Fairs are held annually in Southeast, Interior, Kenai Peninsula and South central AK.
4. Cold Day Murder - Book Review
A Cold Day for Murder. In the first of the Kate Shugak series by author Dana Stabenow, the stage is set to lure readers into great mysteries set in Alaska.
5. Wildflowers of Alaska
When thoughts turn to Alaska, glaciers, bears, and northern lights come to mind quickly. Wildflowers are probably not top on the list. However, there are hordes of beautiful wildflowers in Alaska and many are even edible.
6. Alaska Gardening and Agriculture
When people think of Alaska agriculture, the first thing that comes to mind are usually the huge pumpkins and cabbages at the State Fair. But farms and gardens in Alaska are prolific in spite of the frigid winters and late frosts. If it is "Alaska Grown", you can bet it's good!
7. Kate Shugak Series-Review
Book number 18 in the Kate Shugak series by author Dana Stabenow of Homer Alaska has been published. I read through all of the previous books to be ready for the release of "Restless in the Grave". This is a great series of books that are a lot of fun to read.
8. Reasons to Visit Alaska
Maybe you haven't been able to come up with enough reasons to visit Alaska. While I personally find that impossible to imagine, I thought I'd help out. Here's just a few for you to ponder.
9. Fur Rondy!
Fur Rendezvous in Anchorage, Alaska is a city-wide party! With sports, food, carnival and dozens of activities, it breaks up the long, dark days of late winter with FUN, laughter, silliness and raucous, rollicking good times! This year, “Rondy” runs from 2/26 through 3/07/2010.
10. Alaska Native Heritage
November is Alaska Native Heritage Month. It is one month a year dedicated to focusing on the heritage, contributions, hardships, and lifestyle of the natives of Alaska. This site will feature native articles for the month!
