Things for Kids

Welcome to the land of the Midnight Sun where it is daylight over 20 hours a day! It is magical and your children won’t want to sleep until it gets (somewhat) dark. However, we do have some activities that are guaranteed to wear them out so that when they do go to sleep, they will sleep well.

  • Buy an ice cream cone and sit in the town park and listen to the music, especially “Live at 5” on Summer Fridays.

  • Tour the historical museum — don’t miss the room-sized scale model of Mt. McKinley.

  • Take pictures of each other in the painted plywood cut outs outside of the businesses in town.

  • Buy a book on birds, flowers, or berries of Alaska and try to identify as many as possible.

  • Meet the train and pretend that you are a local and wave at the tourists.

  • How many mosquitoes can you swat in an hour?

  • Raft with a guide down the Talkeetna River.

  • Take a sightseeing trip up river with a riverboat guide.

  • Jog, walk or bike along the 14 mile spur road walking path.

  • Visit the library for story time, and watch movies on the viewing TV.

  • Spend time at the playground.

  • Walk along the river trail and skip rocks.

  • Fish for salmon (get a fishing license if you are 16 or older).

  • Find a nice rock or piece of driftwood to take home as a momento.

  • Fly around the Mountain, land on or near a glacier and take a hike.

  • Use the town map and let the kids plan the path.

  • Walk the trail around XYZ Lakes.

  • Attend the Ranger Programs at the Historical Museum.

  • Get a map of “moose locations” and find all the Moose on Parade.

When you arrive in Talkeetna, you can also ask your hotel staff or lodging owners for ideas and information.

Have fun!
