Northern Lights – Alaska
There are several places in the northern USA where you can see these magical night skies. Your best bet is to try in the fall when skies are darker and the weather is still warm. Idaho, Michigan, Maine, Minnesota and Alaska are known for having some of the best spots to catch the aurora borealis.
Fairbanks, Alaska particularly has some incredible light shows, thanks to its location in the auroral oval, an area around the North Pole where auroras frequently occur.
From lush mountain ranges to idyllic beaches, in Alabama you will find an array of choices in activities. From rappelling to exciting rapids, the choices are nearly endless, in this truly adventure state.
For river adventurers who want fast-paced excitement, Alabama’s rapids are ready to take care of that. Whitewater Express offers guided and guide-assisted trips beginning in Phenix City on the Chattahoochee River.
