Alaska is getting so many visitors because of the natural beauty of its mountains and the dramatic climate that it has endured for thousands of years.
The state has been able to sustain a tourism boom because of its mountainous terrain and its low-lying location, but that is changing, with Alaska’s population projected to grow by 5.4 percent over the next decade and a half.
A new study released this month by the tourism and tourism services group said Alaska’s tourism boom will help the state’s economy.
The report, titled Tourism Outlook: The Latest from Alaska’s Tourism Industry, found that Alaska’s economic growth is driven in part by tourism and the tourism sector has already contributed $8.4 billion in annual economic activity in the state in 2016.
But the report also found that the tourism industry is a large contributor to Alaska’s economy, and that the sector is expected to grow even larger.
“The key driver for economic growth in Alaska is the tourism activity and that has grown in the last five years,” said David R. Shaver, the report’s author and CEO of Tourism Services, Inc. “We believe tourism will continue to be a driver of economic growth for Alaska and its residents for decades to come.”
The report found that tourism contributes to nearly $5 billion annually in economic activity and is projected to support an additional $4.3 billion in economic growth over the same period.
Alaska is home to many national parks, and the state has also developed many historic sites.
But many visitors also visit the state for the Alaska-Alaska Pipeline (APP), which is the only interstate highway in the country that goes through the Arctic Ocean and is home, among other things, to Alaska Airlines.
The APP is one of the few transportation links to the Gulf of Alaska, which is home of the Arctic marine ecosystem.
Alaska has more than 200 miles of pipelines that run from Alaska to Alaska and from Alaska all the way to Alaska.
Alaska also hosts the world’s largest polar bear population, with more than 500,000 polar bears, and there are more than 40 species of whales, dolphins, and porpoises.
Alaska, like many states, has had a rocky relationship with the federal government, but the new report says that the state is starting to open up and has started to embrace new technologies that can help attract tourists to its state.
For example, Alaska has begun offering tours and guided trips to places such as the Alaskan Islands, the North Slope, and Alaska Bay.
It is also working to get tourists to take a trip to the Alaska State Capitol in Anchorage.
Alaska’s Department of Tourism, Tourism, and Recreation has also launched a new website and is promoting its Alaska Adventure Pass program that offers discounts for groups of five or more to Alaska visitors.
Alaska tourism officials are hoping the new website will help attract more tourists to the state and also will allow Alaska to better compete with other states that offer more expensive accommodations and services.
“Alaska has a really exciting and diverse landscape, but there’s still a lot of work to be done,” said Steve Houser, executive director of the Alaska Tourism Department.
“Our goal is to get more tourists and more visitors to Alaska, but we also want to attract more people to Alaska because the opportunities are really exciting, and we need people to come and experience Alaska.”
Housinger said that Alaska is also looking to expand its tourism program, with an eye toward offering tours to the Pacific Northwest and the Gulf Coast regions.
