Many tourists are attracted to Alaska because of the beautiful nature and scenery. Some of these include Glacier Bay National Park and the Tongass National Forest, which is the largest national forest in the US. These attractions are scenic and attract 1.4 million people each year on average.

A lot of people actually visit Alaska by a cruise ship. This form of transport is extremely popular because tourists get to experience the landscape very close up from a sea level, and experience glaciers and mountains right in front of them.

In addition to this Alaska is home to the Chena Hot Springs Resort which also contains potential viewing opportunities for the Northern Lights.

Alaska is one of the most natural and 'unspoiled' places on earth.
