Nearly two million people visit Alaska every year, drawn to its spectacular views and endless activities. But with such size and so many options, it can seem overwhelming when it comes to planning a family vacation to the 49th state. The best place to start? With a local, of course.

Journalist and Alaska resident Erin Kirkland knows every corner of the state, and she has crossed thousands of miles with her son. In Alaska on the Go, she offers a fresh take on exploring some of the most beautiful land in the world, with tips and tricks that only an insider knows. Serving as the perfect tour guide, Kirkland identifies the best and most kid-friendly destinations in cities across Alaska. She offers practical advice on everything from restaurants to rest stops and from weather surprises to wild animals. Photos, maps, and sample itineraries make it easy for parents to plan a trip that will delight and entertain everyone.

The only family travel guide to Alaska written by a current Alaskan, Alaska on the Go makes the state more accessible than ever. Whether traveling via car, cruise ship, or dogsled, this practical, portable guide will open up a new world of memorable adventures.

Review:

"Kirkland offers advice on traveling in Alaska throughout the year. Cruising is a big industry there, so she devotes an entire chapter to it. Just as crucial is what to pack (in a word, layering). She includes a chapter on wildlife, from bears to mosquitoes. The bulk of the book, though, is devoted to describing what to do and where to stay in Alaska ― always written from a family perspective ― from Anchorage to Skagway and, yes, even Wasilla, home of Sarah Palin." (Chicago Tribune)

"Written with a down-to-earth voice and filled with handy information, the guidebook Alaska on the Go: Exploring the 49th State with Children makes planning an Alaskan family vacation doable and fun. Author Erin Kirkland paints a beautiful picture of Alaska’s rugged wilderness that will have you longing for a trip to this northern state. Expect a blend of Alaskan history and cultural lessons along with sound family travel advice and nature exploration safety tips. I love Erin’s humorous, tell-it-like-it-is voice mixed with solid facts." (Travel Mamas)
