Map + Directions
The scenic Alaska Highway links Alaska with Canada and the contiguous United States. It is fully paved with year-round services. If driving to Alaska from the lower 48, however, be prepared for an epic excursion: Anchorage is 2,435 miles from Seattle, and Homer is another 220 miles south at the very end of the Kenai Peninsula.
Relatively closer at hand, Soldotna is practically next door in Alaska terms, only 75 miles to the north, while Seward is another 93 miles east of there.
