Bethel (Alaska)

Default Banner.jpg

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.

Get in

Take a flight to Bethel on Era Aviation [1]or on Alaska Airlines [2]from Anchorage. Alaska Airlines has great connections from the pacific northwest destinations hello!!!!

Get around

Your best bet is to take taxis. In fact, Bethel has more taxis per capita than any city in the United States.

See

The Tundra!

Do

Try dog-mushing in the winter, or salmon fishing in the summer

Buy

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

Eat

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.

Drink

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.

Sleep

Try the longhouse

Get out

Take a flight back to Anchorage on Alaska Airlines [3] or Era Airlines
