In June of 2023, Teddy and I got married in Alaska and had a two week road trip exploring what we were able to in the state for our honeymoon. Alaska is so large that we barely scratched the surface, but we wanted to share what we did so that as you plan your own trip, you can choose what to include in your own itinerary!
On the last day of our Alaska wedding and honeymoon, we drove from Homer to Anchorage. Our flight was very early the next morning so we found a few stops along the way to make the most of the 4+ hour drive. Our first stop however was one we didn’t plan ahead of time and included some flashing lights.
When planning our wedding and honeymoon in Alaska, Teddy and I planned to spend 5 days in the Palmer area. The main reason for this is that it was close to where we’d depart from for our wedding on a glacier, but also because of it’s central location to so many things to do.
During our time in Palmer, we were able to do a good bit of exploring. Based on what we did and what we wish we would have had time for, I put together a 5 day itinerary for your time in the area.
