Dale’s mom, dad, sister, brother-in-law, and 9 month old niece are coming to stay with us in mid-September for a week and a half. This is, as you would guess, both exciting and overwhelming. The adults have varying interests, and with a baby and the number of people, we don’t know how mobile the whole group will be… so we’ve been making a list of all of the things we know of, to do in and around Anchorage, so they’ll have a chance to pick things they want to do ahead of time.

Check it out, and if you’re local, please tell us what we’re missing. If you’re not local, feel free to ask questions.

We’ve already had one visitor (my dad), and he didn’t get quite as long a list of possibilities, in part because we were newer to town and in part because we didn’t have quite as much time to get organized. Also, we might not have thought of it? I feel bad, like I really should have done this then. But he says he’s coming back, so at least we’ll be ready.

Anyway, we’re hoping this is a useful resource for them—and for anyone else who wants to come visit!

Hi, everyone! It’s the time of year when people start thinking about their summer vacation plans, apparently. We’ve been getting questions about when is a good time to visit. Tourist season is mid-May through mid-September. But summers also fill up quickly, and “When is a good time to visit?” becomes a more and more complex question to answer as time goes on. Especially if we’re getting multiple visitors, which, now that we have space to put people up, is a more likely occurrence. 

So we’ll try to solve the problem with technology! We made a Google calendar, which we’ll block out with *BAD* times to visit. If the day is marked, we have something we can’t get out of. One of us might be out of town, even. Or someone else might be in town. Anything that makes it a bad time to visit will go up on this calendar. Hopefully, that helps. :)
