Q: I am looking for a vacation around Anchorage where my husband can charter a boat to go fishing and I can stay in a nice big comfortable hotel where they have sightseeing tours and other things to do. Suggestions?
A: I would recommend trips to Seward and Talkeetna. Seward, is just 120 south of Anchorage and offers ample fishing opportunites and great tour  opportunities for you. We recommend that you contact Saltwater Safaris  for fishing trips. After a few days in Seward, I would suggest heading to Talkeetna, about two hours north of Anchorage. This area would offer river fishing  for your husband and a flightseeing  trip for you, not to mention a stay at the wonderful Talkeetna Alaska Lodge .
