Alaska is the 49th and largest state in the United States of America. Separated from the rest of the country, by Canada, Alaska lies on the Arctic Circle. It is still the least densely populated state in the union and for a long time was home to the lowest population. America's final frontier is the size of California, Texas and Montana combined, making it huge in comparison to the rest of the states! Alaska is also home to the highest point in North America and all of the top ten highest mountains in the USA. Across the Bering Strait lies the country of Russia and the continent of Asia.
Southeastern Alaska - Sometimes called the "panhandle", it is a thin strip of land and islands between Canada's British Columbia and the northern Pacific Ocean. It contains the Inside Passage, a series of waterways largely protected from the Pacific by islands, providing a safer sea route up and down the coast.
Southcentral Alaska - Home to its largest population center around Anchorage, on the north Pacific Ocean.
Southwestern Alaska - Includes the Aleutian Islands, Kodiak Island, and the mainland which forms the "chin" of Alaska.
Central Alaska - A region in Alaska that includes Fairbanks, which is Alaska's second largest city, but only has around 40,000 people.
Arctic Alaska - Also referred to as Far North Alaska, is a vast region of Alaska extending from around the Artic Circle to the Arctic Ocean.
