Introduction to Alaska

Alaska is the largest state in the USA and also one of the most sparsely populated, with breathtaking beauty. With over three million lakes, over 3000 rivers, 17 of the USA’s 20 highest peaks, 15 national parks and over 100,000 glaciers it’s one of the most breathtaking scenery in the USA.

The state of Alaska was purchased from Russia on March 30, 1867, for $7.2 million, which comes to about two cents per acre. It was arguably the best territory conquered or bought by the Americans. The rugged land is filled with gold and it’s also the biggest producer of oil in America and it has been paid for many times over now.

Alaska is one of the most visited states in the USA and it’s definitely worth a visit. We recommend if you are interested in going then maybe do an Alaskan cruise, which is considered to be one of the most fascinating things to do in Alaska.
