More than 74,000 people travel to Alaska each summer from the Lower 48 states in search of seasonal work. Some find jobs in the fishing industry, while others work on small cruise ships or in one of Alaska's resorts. Still others work in Alaska's 120 state parks and eight national parks.

Almost all working travelers in Alaska have one thing in common: they work to fund a summer experience they otherwise could not afford. Road to Alaska will be the first travel guide for the tens of thousands of people who go each year.
