Sitka

 

Description of Destination : sitka
 

SITKA:

Situated on Baranof Island and nestled between snowy mountains and the Pacific Ocean sits one of the most beautiful seaside towns in Alaska. Discover the echoes of Sitka's Russian heyday beneath the onion domes of St. Michael's Cathedral and at a performance by the New Archangel Dancers.


Then stand on the spot where the United States took possession of Alaska in 1867 for $7.2 million, less than two cents per acre. The dramatic setting in the shadow of Mt. Edgecumbe is one of the loveliest in the Great Land.

Take a stroll through old-growth forest in Sitka National Historical Park, shop the downtown district and poke around the Sheldon Jackson Museum for a close-up look at some of the city's most prized arts, crafts and Russian relics. Sitka is also blessed with abundant marine wildlife. Get out on the water aboard a dayboat or kayak, and you'll pass seal haul-outs and seabird rookeries filled with nature's sights and sounds. Or visit the fascinating Raptor Center, a renowned Sitka attraction.
