“We have always wanted to rent an RV, and my son’s birthday is this weekend, so, we were excited to go out and explore Alaska,” Lisa Norbert said.

The Norberts won’t be alone. The latest report from the Alaska Travel Industry Association found 13 percent of visitors to the state in 2016 used RVs to get from point A to point B, according to a story by KTVA.com.
