Alaska Road Trip - Valdez

From Seward, we traveled to Valdez.  We allotted eight hours driving time for this trip.  In hindsight, rather than drive from Seward to Valdez - I wish we had taken the ferry from Whittier.  But it was fully booked by the time I realized this was an option.  Our favorite part of the drive was the last hour into Valdez during the approach to Worthington Glacier and Thompson Pass.  One tip:  Fuel up and grab snacks in GlenAllen before heading down into Valdez.

In Valdez, we stayed at the Best Western Valdez Harbor Inn.  This was a perfect hotel for exploring the city.  We parked the car and walked everywhere - plenty of restaurant and coffee options to choose from.
