Alaska's Independent Tourism Turns A Corner: At The Hub!
|Large numbers of visitors are coming to the Greater Copper Valley Chamber's|
|Talking with travelers in the visitor center.|
The Greater Copper Valley Chamber's recent renovations came just in time. This summer, the number of travelers out on Alaska's road system is extraordinarily high. We haven't seen this many cars, campers and motor homes in the Hub parking lot in Glennallen, since 2008.
Although the Copper Valley is largely volunteer-run, on a small budget, this doesn't mean that it is not a key destination point for independent travelers in Alaska. And the intense use of the visitor center this summer shows that.
