Hope is a tiny community in the northern Kenai Peninsula of Alaska that is popular for long, icy winters and brief, mild summers. This former mining camp for the gold-rich Resurrection Creek was founded and named Hope City in 1896. Its small-town vibe attracts both tourists and residents of its famous neighbor, Anchorage. This sleepy town comes alive during the salmon season when woody areas become campsites. While the creek is great for whitewater rafting and gold panning during summer, the picturesque snow-capped mountains are perfect for skiing and snowboarding during winter. For a great stay, check out the best cabin rentals in Hope, Alaska.

Hearty, home-cooked dishes are served at the lodge’s restaurant to satiate your hunger. Take some selfies while paddling your boat on the pond surrounded by gorgeous, lush scenery. You can go fishing for salmon at Bear Creek during the season.
