Our drive from Anchorage to Denali wasn’t too long and the roads were actually in great shape (forgot we were in Alaska!!!).  We read in the Milepost about a special little town called Talkeetna.  The town was located at the end of  a 14 mile dead end road but looked interesting enough to make the side trip.

We set up on the front row of an empty campground but that changed quickly as many RVs showed up in the afternoon.  The town is a stop for the tour trains so it had your normal collection of shops to buy everything of little use.  Talkeetna did surprise us however with a great selection of restaurants including a bakery, brew pub, and even home made ice cream.  Of course we had to sample all of these establishments!

We girls went out window shopping in town while the boys tried their luck with fishing.  At the end of the day, the girls won over the boys.

All in all, Talkeetna was a great find and we would definitely go back if ever in the area.
