Kodiak Island, AK

Pros: Kodiak Island is without a doubt one of the most beautiful and stunning places in the world...

Cons: If anything, there is a lacking in mainstream economical benefits, such as large mall centers or fast food chains (save for the infamous Mickey Dee's) like Anchorage has to offer...

This is a good place to Grab a lunch from any of the restaurants along the mainroads and hit the harbour, Dead Man's Curve (due to reconstruction of the road, residents jokingly refer to it now as "Wounded Man's Curve") or any spot on the rocky beaches and enjoy whatever you rest your eyes on!

Anyone looking for some excitement physically and perhaps a way to freeze your ears off should hike the dangerous *tempting, I know* side of Barometer mountain, which overlooks both the Coast Guard base and Kodiak Town itself.

General info: I have recently transfered to Virginia with my family and miss the place sorely, hoping to make my way back within the next two years...
