Alaska in a Nutshell
This app has it all. We have traveled to different areas of the world and planning our vacations took a large part of our time. When we decided to come to Alaska we did some research, but when we learned about the Alaska app, that was all we needed. The Alaska app gave us information about lodging,dining and most importantly great places to tour. There were dozens upon dozens of activities that we were able to choose from. We enjoyed watching the videos and seeing pictures of different areas around the state because we were able to make informed decisions of what we wanted to do. If you plan on visiting Alaska, then I highly recommend downloading this app. It is easy to use and you will be glad you did.
Great app, highly recommend it!
My husband and I made great use of the app on our 2-week Alaska trip. From Fairbanks to Seward to Kenai to Anchorage, and for attractions, activities, hiking, restaurants, shopping and more. It's not necessarily a one stop-shop but is a superb supplement to use in conjunction with Google Maps and Trip Advisor. I thoroughly loved The Alaska App and recommend it!!
This app is easy to navigate and packed with useful information. Used it when in AK to find day tours and good coffee and restaurants. Information was accurate and easy to store in favorites. Also used it to plan a trip for our kids, and found it to be a one-stop-shop for everything they wanted to do in a week. Fun to use, great for the AK visitor or armchair traveller.
