Explore the Untouched Wilderness of Ketchikan

Monday, March 16th, 2009

Ketchikan, Alaska – often referred to as the “Salmon Capital of the World” – is a great place to take the family if you are traveling in late spring or during the summer.  The city’s economy is largely dependent on tourism and fishing, and judging on all the activities on offer there, this is definitely a good thing.

While Alaska may be known to some as an area where there isn’t much to do, Ketchikan Tours provides more than a few fun activities that will prove to you otherwise.  While you are in Ketchikan, you can see Orca’s Cove, Pennock Island, and Misty Fjords National Monument, which happens to be the area’s most popular attraction.  For the active bunch, there are opportunities to go kayaking, boating, take a ride in a seaplane, or take a glacier tour.  If your plans take you out of Ketchikan, you can also use Ketchikan Tours to plan activities in Anchorage, Seward, Denali, and Talkeetna.

When you are looking to visit Misty Fjords National Monument – and you should – there are several tours that you can choose from, each offering a unique perspective on your surroundings.  The Misty Fjords Flight-Seeing Tour takes you high above the waterfalls, fjords, and sparkling lakes for a spectacular aerial view.  In addition to the impressive granite walls, which rise over 3,000 feet in the air, you will also be exposed to many species of wildlife including bears, deer, wolves, whales, bald eagles, and mountain goats.  Stay alert and there is no telling what you will find!

Another option, if you are more interested in being out on the water, is the Misty Fjords Full Day Kayak Adventure.  You don’t have to be a kayaking expert to come on this exciting excursion, which takes you right into the heart of the Fjords.   First, you will board a fast boat and cruise out to the Misty Fjords, all while enjoying an amazing panoramic view of the area.  You will travel up the Behm Canal and then stop at New Eddystone Rock, which is a volcanic plug that rises above the ocean at an altitude of 237 feet.  Once you reach Rudyerd Fjord, you will embark on your kayaking trip and start exploring the Misty Fjords National Monument.

Your guide will walk you through the paddling basics as you climb into one of the stable fiberglass boats.  You will find that your ride is exceptionally smooth, since the Fjords are well-protected from strong winds.  If you visit anytime from July on, you can even watch the salmon fighting their way up stream as they return from the open ocean.  This is only one of many wildlife encounters you will enjoy as you observe animals and their young feeding from the streams nearby.  You will enjoy a picnic lunch and a walk through some of the rainforests and you can take some time to hike if you so desire.  If you are interested in taking some incredible pictures, this is the trip for you.

From start to finish, you will thoroughly enjoy your trip to Ketchikan, whether you opt for one of the tours above or for one of the many other activities currently available.  Visit for more on how you can make your Alaska trip truly unforgettable.

Saddle Up for the Dude Ranch

Monday, January 26th, 2009

For the ultimate Western experience while you are in Texas, book the Ranch Stay Western Package in Grandview Texas.  This package includes an overnight stay at the ranch and a full country breakfast.  Lunch is included as well.  Other activities around the ranch include playing horseshoes, paintball laser tag, and stocked pond fishing.  The ranch is situated in an 1880s Western town where you can still see real cowboys herding cattle while on horseback.

After breakfast, you will go on a beautiful trail ride and have a roping lesson or go skeet shooting.  If you have never gone skeet shooting it is worth it to try at least once.  You may be even better at it than you think! Later on you can take a trip over to the adult only lounge to take a break and mingle.

The ranch is only 35 minutes from downtown Fort Worth and Dallas, so it is very convenient but far enough away from the city to give you a real look into cowboy life.  You can stay for more than one night, but ticket prices are per overnight stay.  The kids will love this look into the past and they will get to feel like cowboys for a day.  So, the next time they decide to play Cowboys & Indians they will have more insight into their characters.

Be prepared to have the time of your life on this trip.  There will be dancing, hayrides, cookouts, andhorseback riding which are all fun activities for the whole family.  For those bold enough to give it a shot, there is also a mechanical bull to ride.      To book your stay on the ranch, visit and check out all the other fun things to do while you are in the area.
