Wasilla is situated between two rivers, both of which were formed by ancient glaciers and work with the city’s mountain views to paint the picture of natural beauty. Wasilla is small, with a population of only 7,831 people, but has a big city attitude that is perfectly paired with small-town values and charm.
In terms of things to do, Wasilla definitely isn’t lacking. Located along the Iditarod Trail is the Knik Museum -- a two storey museum that was formerly a pool hall and is now home to the Dog Musher’s Hall of Fame. Alongside the museum, Wasilla also offers golf at the Settlers Bay Golf Course, kayaking and canoeing, and sightseeing tours. For visitors who like the outdoors, there are a number of great hiking trails and a reptile rescue operation that offers birthday party appearances and presentations. A dog sledding class is offered in the Wasilla area and is a popular activity for visitors, as it gives them the chance to train sled dogs and control their own sled and dog team.
The best time to embark on your Alaskan adventure is between June and August, as summer is in full swing and the temperatures are warm and welcoming.
