Palmer Travel Tips
The Beauty of Palmer Cabins
Palmer, Alaska is a part of the Anchorage Metropolitan Statistical Area. With a population of over 8,000 people, the small-town feel is not lost on this quaint region. Here are a few reasons to plan a visit to beautiful Palmer.
Getting the full Palmer experience begins with choosing a place to stay. Palmer cabins offer the creature comforts of home for any traveller who enjoys a cozy place to rest. Whether lounging with a lakeside view or watching wildlife unfold quietly just outside the door, finding the perfect vacation rental is a wonderful asset on any holiday. Palmer lodging offers a unique vacation experience from the moment the day beings.
Palmer lodging is the perfect home base for attending Palmer's annual Alaska State Fair. The fair attracts hundreds of thousands through its gates each year. Even President John F. Kennedy walked through the fairgrounds during its 25th Anniversary in 1960. The fairgrounds are located in Palmer's Matanuska-Susitna Valley and broke world records in 2009 with an 82.9 pound rutabaga. The fair is held during the end of August through early September. Munch on the freshest Alaskan seafood, soak up native arts and crafts on display and head home to Alaska vacation rentals after a day of fun. The AT&T Borealis Concert series has drawn such well-known performers such as Ted Nugent, Hinder, and David Archuletta.
During a summer stay, come cheer on the Mat-Su Miners. This hometown team in the Alaska Baseball League was founded in 1976. Mat-Su (Matanuska-Susitna) Miners Inc. is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization focused on the perpetuation of the sport. Another activity to add to the to-do list is racing. A visit to the IHRA Alaska Raceway Park will make any drag racing enthusiast happy. Tranquil fishing and nature viewing are two other amazing aspects that these Palmer cabins put you near.
