It is a true delight to start our vacation from such a small quaint Alaskan town. Talkeetna, AK would definitely be one of our favorite destinations. Beginning our journey on Parks Highway and hoping that we would be one of those people who get to see Mt McKinley. There are several opportunities to see the Alaskan range through out your drive on Parks Highway and Spur Road. As we travelled during the shoulder season thats in May, we did not see many people around, so we had the road for ourselves through out the drive.
Driving to Traleika Mountaintop Cabins would be a little tricky, even if you get lost, you still get to enjoy the alaskan range. There are three cabins of which we reserved Birchcrest Cabin but luckily got upgraded to Sultana
Talkeetna downtown is a small downtown where there are many restaurants and a road that takes you to Talkeetna River. The restaurants offer various varieties of alaskan sea food. We went to dine at Mountain High Pizza and the food was really good and the service is just great. After watching Man vs Food, we decided to have our dinner at West Rib Grill. It has nothing great to offer and I guess Mc Donald's burger tastes better than burgers here.Trust me, it's a rip off.
Many activities in Talkeetna include the flight-seeing tours, hiking, fishing etc. Talkeetna is a small town and I encourage you to visit and take advantage of fishing, flight seeing or other activities available in this area but if you are looking for a nice place to stay Traleika Mountaintop Cabins is the perfect loding choice.
