The Alaska Highway was built before WWII to connect the contiguous U.S. states to Alaska through Canada. Beginning in Dawson Creek, British Columbia and ending in Delta Junction, Ala., this adventurous journey is a great way to get a taste of the great outdoors. Grab a coffee at Café Europa before driving out to relax in the Liard Hot Springs. Along Kluane Lake in Yukon Territory, The Chuckwagon is an off-the-grid roadside stop for buffalo burgers and chocolate milkshakes. Don’t miss Klondie Rib and Salmon Barbeque in Whitehorse for Northern food specialties like arctic char, musk ox, caribou, and bison.
