As summer has passed its halfway mark in Alaska, make Valdez your destination for a weekend getaway before the days get shorter.
Valdez is known for being a charming fishing town, and August is a prime time to partake in sport fishing. There are many options for guided trips ranging from halibut and/or salmon charters to river boat trips.
Other activities in the community include flight-seeing tours, kayaking excursions and more. There is no better road trip destination to round out an Alaska summer heading to the City of Valdez. Visit the Valdez Convention & Visitors Bureau’s website for more ideas.
