If there is one thing Alaska has, it is coastline. Alaska has 44,500 linear miles of coastline. That is more than all the other states of the US combined. Yes- combined!
With so much coastline and having such an important fishing industry, many of Alaska’s mid-sized towns are situated there. It is no secret that I prefer visiting the smaller, working towns in Alaska more than the tourist kitsch areas that ware frequented by the cruise ships. Part of the reason is that I really like walking through the harbors and looking at the boats. I think boats are just beautiful!
Here are a few of my favorite Alaskan harbors I’ve seen to date. (The picture above is of the harbor in Whittier.)
