Why Alaska by RV or Motorhome?
Alaska isn't the snowy, barren tundra you may imagine. Although there are many areas in this state that are still quite secluded, the state isn't left behind without any form of transportation. While in Alaska, you can travel not only by RV, but also by train, plane, bus, cruise line, and so forth. Why, then, should you consider traveling by RV? Here are the major advantages of RV travel:
- Scenery: By far, Alaska's major draw is the fantastic scenery. Traveling by plane, you miss much of that majesty. If you travel by boat, bus, or train, you do get to see Alaska's natural environment, but it is nothing compared to being able to stop, get out of your RV, and come face to face with nature. By RV, you choose where you want to travel and enjoy the scenery, as well as how long you want to spend doing so.
- Good Road Conditions: While traveling by RV in other states may be a bit of a hassle, by RV in Alaska is surprising pleasant. Most of Alaska's roads are in top-notch shape, with a few of the highways in particular getting the best possible rating from government, as All-American Roads. In other words, it isn't your typical driving experience.
- Cost: Although renting and driving an RV is expensive, look at it relative to the costs you would have incurred traveling another way. With an RV, you don't have to pay for other transportation, but more importantly, you don't have to pay for a hotel room. RV camping spaces are fairly inexpensive and, in some cases, free. You'll also save money on meals, since you can cook them yourself.
- Travel Room: If you're going to drive, especially on a family vacation, doing so by RV is definitely more comfortable. Even the smallest RVs fit four adults at the least. With a larger RV, even a bigger family has no problem traveling comfortable.
- Convenience: Not having fun at a specific site? Easy - just leave. With an RV, you're free to travel when you want, where you want, how you want.
