Alaska Shopping and nightlife

Shopping in Alaska

Unique Alaskan products and crafts include: gold nugget jewellery; items carved from jade; handmade clothing and toys; and woven baskets of beach grass, bark and baleen. Native sea-oil candles, beaded mittens and miniature hand-carved totem poles are also popular souvenirs. The 'Made in Alaska' logo indicates that an item has been genuinely manufactured in Alaska, and the 'silver hand' logo identifies Native Alaskan handicrafts.

Nightlife in Alaska

Live music is very popular in Alaska. Many bars offer a wide choice of late-night sounds, ranging from rock to jazz and blues. Anchorage has a bigger nightlife scene than the interior city of Fairbanks.
