    Where to Eat in Homer: 15 Great Restaurants at the End of the Road

    This might sound crazy to say, but despite growing up in Alaska, I haven't actually been everywhere. I mean, Alaska is BIG – and even if you spend a lifetime there, you won't see it all. So though I am officially a Sourdough after my 15 winters in The Last Frontier (and nearly as many return trips since moving to the Lower 48), there are still places on my 'someday' list...

    Where to Eat in Wrangell, Alaska: 9 Big Flavors for a Small Town

    Don't confuse it with the national park: the small, Southeast Alaskan community of Wrangell is a very different place than the largest area of protected land in the U.S. (Wrangell-St. Elias National Park). And that's a good thing! Wrangell, originally called Ḵaachx̱ana.áakʼw by the Tlingit people and later renamed Врангель ("Vrangel'") by Russian settlers, is a unique spot that doesn't make the list for most Alaskan travelers – even those on cruises in the Inside Passage...

    Where to Eat in Haines, Alaska: 13 Spots to Eat & Drink

    Nestled in a small bay off the Lynn Canal and visited by fewer cruise ships than its sister town Skagway, Haines, Alaska, is easy to miss on many Alaska itineraries – but that doesn't mean you should skip it, if you have the chance. Known for incredible wildlife viewing and a chance to escape the summer crowds, Haines has a lot to offer visitors, and is well worth a stop whether you find yourself there by ferry or on a detour from driving the Alaska-Canadian Highway to or from Alaska...

    Where to Eat in Whittier, Alaska: 7 Spots to Fuel Up for Adventure

    I'll be honest: one of my favorite culinary experiences in Whittier isn't actually in Whittier; I enjoyed a delicious dram of peppermint schnapps over glacier ice on the Phillips 26 Glacier Cruise during my last visit, and it held a special place in my heart. But you might find yourself on land in Whittier – perhaps before or after a glacier cruise or fishing charter or planning one of the other things to do in Whittier – and feeling hungry...

    Where to Eat in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory: 11 Delicious Spots to Visit

    If you find yourself in the Yukon Territory, I'm assuming it's not by accident. Canada's northwesternmost territory is remote and relatively undeveloped by modern tourist standards: it's traversed by only a few highways, and is even less visited than some of the most far-flung places I've visited in neighboring Alaska. Your options for where to stay and where to eat are limited – but don't get me wrong: there's no shortage of incredible things to do in the Yukon...

    Where to Eat in Haines Junction, Yukon: Your Best (& Only!) Bets

    It's called the "animal cupcake," but it's not edible: it's the quirky roadside attraction that marks the interaction between the Alaska-Canadian Highway and the Haines Highway in the town of Haines Junction, Yukon Territory. Though you can't nosh into it, you can find other delicious foods in this small northern community – for a town that just 700 people call home, there are some decent options...
