Not all Alaska vacations involve hip boots

Posted: Friday, February 09, 2007

While many visitors enjoy the variety of outdoor activities and opportunities to wet their line in search of the new world record king salmon, the opportunity to shop is a “lure” many travelers can’t resist.

From refined galleries that feature artwork capturing Alaska’s scenery, to quaint gift shops with unique collectables, you will find shopping on the Kenai Peninsula to be an enjoyable component to your vacation.

Starting on Memorial Day, the Kenai Saturday Market is hosted by the Kenai Convention and Visitors Bureau. Featuring local artisans and growers, you will want to make a point to browse the Kenai Visitors and Cultural Center while you are there. Visitors to the Kenai Peninsula are able to select from a wide array of indigenous and contemporary art galleries, as well as various specialty stores. In addition to handcrafted gifts, Alaskana and sporting goods, your shopping should include a visit to the processing shops that can help you out with great seafood and true Alaska delicacies. Many shops are helpful in aiding you with shipping arrangements.
