Whimsical Waterside Retreats Adventurers Will Love

 By: Courtney Dowd-Stanley 

When you think about what a "whimsical waterside retreat" looks like, what comes to mind? Maybe it's fishing for king salmon in one of Alaska's most beloved rivers. With 6,640 miles of coastline in Alaska, more than all of the other states' coastlines combined, it's no surprise you'll find these epic waterside retreats in the Last Frontier. Ever try digging for razor clams with a group of your best friends (and FAM) while viewing utterly jaw-dropping volcanoes that are bolting right up out of the earth's surface? Talk about incredible! The sights, scenes, and adventures to be had in the last frontier are unlike anywhere else in the world. This big, bold, beautiful beast of a state has so much to be offered. But after a long winter + spring breakup, nothing gets us more excited than packing up and enjoying a weekend getaway to a whimsical waterside retreat. Check out some of our top Alaska destination travel picks below, and be sure to add these to your summer bucket list STAT.  Each blue title is a clickable link - so feel free to give them a "tap" and learn a little something special about what each & every one has to offer...
