As the 49th state of the United States and the largest state in the U.S. in land area, Alaska is the only non-contiguous state in North America. Often mistaken for having bad weather and even worse road conditions, Alaskans enjoy average daily temperatures from the 60s-90s during the summer, and take a drive along the asphalt Alaska Highway.

Its breathtaking scenery, majestic music festivals, and rich culture make Alaska the perfect location for many films and television shows.
