Men Fish While Women Shop in Alaska

Q: Is there a place for the men to fish and our wives to go shopping?

A: I would recommend stops in Anchorage, Seward or Talkeetna. They each offer different fishing opportunities as well as different choices for the wives activities. In Anchorage, the men can choose a fly in fishing trip [1] or try their luck for salmon in Ship Creek in downtown Anchorage. If the fishing trip is on a Saturday, the wives can spend their day at the Saturday Market [2] in downtown or if on another day they can roam the gift shops and mall all located in walking distance of our downtown Anchorage hotels. In Talkeetna, located two hours north of Anchorage, the men could take a half day guided fishing [3] trip and the wives could take a flightseeing trip [4]with a glacier landing. Another great option would be a halibut fishing charter in Seward Alaska for the men and a glacier and wildlife cruise [5] for the wives. Alaska vacations offer something for everyone to enjoy!
