At the base of the Chugach Mountains in the shadow of a towering glacier and surrounded by snowcapped peaks, the tiny town of Whittier is the gateway to the spectacular Prince William Sound and the city of Anchorage. Whittier exists on thriving fishing and tourism industries. Its 290 residents enjoy a near wilderness state, as it was inaccessible by road until 2000.

Anton Anderson Memorial Tunnel
The Anton Anderson Memorial Tunnel accommodates highway traffic as well as rail, and at two and a half miles, it is the longest highway tunnel in North America.

Prince William Sound
With its 3,000 miles of shoreline, this pristine tundra is one of the most scenic archipelagoes of tidewater glaciers in the world. It also hosts the largest gathering of migratory birds and a wealth of marine wildlife.
