Each region of the state has something unique to offer visitors. The southwest area is great for those who enjoy nature, hiking and viewing wildlife. Many brown bears roam this landscape. 

Southeastern Alaska is also called the Inside Passage, it has islands, shoreline and has a rich history of gold mining. A more mountainous landscape with glaciers looms in Southcentral Alaska where Anchorage is located.

The Interior is home to Mount McKinley, which rises to 20,320 feet. Western Alaska is known for the Kodiak and Katmai bear populations. It also has many nesting grounds for birds.

The Northern expanse of the state is dubbed, "Arctic Alaska." Fewer people live in this area, however, caribou and polar bears live here. In the North Slope there are many oil companies. According to Alaska.com, "In Barrow, the sun stays up for weeks during the summer, but winter brings a two-month-long night."
