With all the professional and personal responsibilities you have, life can often feel extremely overwhelming. In order to decompress, clear your head, and boost your performance for the rest of the year, taking an annual vacation isn’t just recommended, it’s downright necessary.
According to an internal employee study by professional services firm Ernst and Young, for each additional 10 hours of vacation time employees took, their year-end performance ratings improved 8%.
Rather than taking a conventional vacation trip to South Florida or California, consider heading to the 49th state: Alaska. Alaska might not seem like a top vacation destination, but with all the amazing opportunities this state has to offer, it certainly is. Here are some of the best things to do while vacationing in Alaska:
- Go dog sledding — You can enjoy the beautiful Yukon wilderness throughout your trip during dogsled tours. Going to the beach during vacation is great, but it’s a little played out. Instead, welcome new opportunities and go dog sledding across Alaska!
- Check out Denali National Park — There are over 6 million acres of tundra, alpine ranges, glaciers, and river valleys located in the astonishing Denali National Park. You and your guide will be able to check out some amazing wildlife, as well, including reindeer, wolves, elk, grizzlies, and roughly 200 species of beautiful birds.
- Take a helicopter tour — There are helicopter tours in Anchorage that will leave you speechless. Of the 20 highest peaks in the U.S., 17 of them are in Alaska — and you’ll be able to enjoy some of the most breathtaking views in the world safely in the air. Your life will truly never be the same after a helicopter tour across Alaska.
- Visit the Dr. Suess House — This whimsical stacked cabin looks like something right out of a Dr. Seuss children’s book. Nicknamed the Goose Creek Tower, you and your family will have a blast visiting this literary Alaskan landmark.
