Whittier is Anchorage's portal to Prince William Sound. Although Anchorage itself in on Upper Cook Inlet, the highest tides in the Northern America, muddy, fast-moving water offers no use for boating. Whittier, on the other hand, stands on the edge of a long fjord, whose clear waters are full of salmon orcas, and otters. Surrounded by mountains dripping with glaciers which are beautiful when the sun is shining, they also trap storms over the town and as a result 15 feet of rain and 20 feet of snow a year is average. Most of town's 250 residents live in one 14-story structure, which certainly cuts down on snow-shoveling time.
       In the past, the only way to get to Whittier was by riding through the mountain by train. Now the railway tunnel is paved creating North America's longest highway tunnel.

 But it is also among the most inconvenient to use in North America. It has only one lane, and that lane must be shared by traffic and trains in both directions.

There are lots of exciting things to do in Whittier such as hiking, fishing for salmon, trout, red snapper, photography, hunting for bear and birds, wildlife viewing, and much more right here in Whittier, Alaska!

Come and Enjoy the Gateway to Prince William Sound!!!
