      The Seward Highway in AK is AMAZING! I did the drive as a child with my parents from Chicago to Alaska and back. It was hands-down THE most memorable trip of my life. From nature to the sights on the way there the Seward Highway is only a glimpse at the beauty. In reality, AL-CAN Highway in its’ full length should be on everyone’s bucket list. It took us 20+ days to do it but well worth it.
