Alaska

Alaska is quite literally the final frontier, where the edge of the civilized world meets a great untamed wilderness. There are few places on the planet that rival its remote and wild landscape, but you don’t have to be stuck in the wilderness to enjoy this 420-friendly state’s best bud. In Anchorage, high-end and low-cost options are readily available for willing consumers. Alaska legalized recreational marijuana use in 2014 and has since become perhaps the most unique pot tourism destination on the planet. Where else can you get high and go whale watching? The average ounce costs roughly $297.71, but it’s a small price to pay when you’re in such a stunning state.

The state of Alaska itself is socially distanced from the rest of the country. With miles of national parks, breathtaking landscapes, and remote wilderness- this state is likely the most perfect spot to truly get away. Stay in a remote cabin, spend days exploring the great outdoors, or set up camp in a national park- Alaska is brimming with adventure and excitement.

I’d love to visit Alaska by cruise !
