Bethel is a city in Alaska. It is the main hub for many of the surrounding native villages and the main port of the Kuskokwim River in the Yukon Kuskokwim Delta.
Your best bet is to take taxis. In fact, Bethel has more taxis per capita than any city in the United States.
Try dog-mushing in the winter, or salmon fishing in the summer
Native Crafts from the locals, usually to be found peddling their wares at the hospital. Don't buy groceries; you won't see much change from $10 if you buy a gallon of milk
Dimitris is a good bet; great subs. also the cafe by the airport is good for a greasy breakfast & watching the planes/pilots. And subway has $8 footlongs.
It is now legal to buy and serve alcohol however Bethel has not issued any liquor licenses. So you can either have some flown in from Anchorage or buy some on the black market in which you'll be spending some real cash.
Try the longhouse
Take a flight back to Anchorage on Alaska Airlines  or Era Airlines
