With over 1 million tourists visiting Alaska each year, it can be hard to figure out when is the best time to visit. However, depending on what kind of weather you are looking for, there are different times of the year when you can plan a trip. For example, if you are looking for the best weather, which consists of temperatures ranging from 60 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit, then you want to visit during the end of May until the middle of August. Starting June 21st is the summer season that brings longer days which means around 19 hours of sun every day, dry weather, mosquitoes and flowers in bloom. During the autumn season, the weather is rainy, cloudy and is often cool. While the December until March is probably the busiest time of the year because of all of the winter activities.
