GMAK brings you Erin Kirkland of AKontheGo with some ideas for family-friendly weekend fun!

Your Family Fun Link is celebrating the Alaska Marine Highway System, and 50 years of supporting Alaska coastal communities!

From Southeast Alaska's beautiful inside passage, to the rugged Aleutian chain, the Marine Highway is the ONLY waterbased scenic byway and all-American road, offering residents and visitors a vital link to community services and interesting attractions, as well as gorgeous scenery.

If you just want to take a day trip, or take a few days exploring Alaska's coastal areas, the ferry is a perfect choice for weekend fun! You can spend time with other visitors in the common areas, or reserve a state room for some private relaxation.
