Alaska Summer Packing

Be prepared for cool and wet weather. After all, this is Alaska! From mid- June to mid-August, expect lows in low 50s. Highs will be in the 50s -70s. We can sometimes reach 70 or higher. Maybe you’ll get lucky! Always be prepared for rain. There are Laundromats if you need to wash clothes.
Good news: we do have stores here in the Last Frontier, at least in Anchorage, and TAX FREE on most items. Wal-Mart, Fred Meyer, Sam’s, Costco, etc.…
Jeans are standard for Alaska, even for church. No need to waste valuable packing space bringing religious clothes. 

Remember luggage and weight restrictions!
