If you have the chance to meet the hostess of the museum, Diane, you will be talking to the encyclopedia of the Iditarod and the history on the mushers. Then, a visit to the Iditarod museum is a must.

located at the original site of the village of Knik, the museum provides the visitor with many artifacts from the early days of the community. Additionally you can see the history of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race in Alaska.

this old building is the attraction. The new road destroyed the historic town of Knik. Darn those bulldozers. The Knik Bar Roadhouse is a real Alaskan dive, hamburgers don't kill you and you can sit down by the lake and eat them. Folks at the...More
