The Magic of Alaska
Magic Cruises & Tours Hosts Annual Alaska Seminar at the MAC
ever gazed at the photos of an Alaska cruise liner as it makes its way among fiords and glaciers and longed to experience it as well, this may be your opportunity to learn more. Downtown Worthington's very own Magic Cruises & Tours is hosting its 25th Annual Alaska Seminar at the Peggy R. McConnell Arts Center on Sunday, August 11. The event will include a film presentation, a speaker from Princess Cruises, informational packets, valuable offers and bonuses, door prizes--and plenty of fun.
"Alaska is probably the top-rated destination worldwide," said Owner Patti Cash. "It's so vast, and many still refer to it as the last frontier. It is also very diverse, from rain forests to glaciers to tundra." The Alaskan coastline is larger than the entire coastline of the continental United States, and the state itself is two-and-a-half times the size of Texas. It is home to 11 of the tallest mountains in North America, including Mt. McKinley.
The annual seminar is an opportunity to gather a wide range of information--most of which is not well known--that could help to make your Alaska trip spectacular and memorable. In fact, the nearly countless sights and travel options are difficult to sort through without professional input. For instance, many travelers combine a 7-day cruise with a multiple-day land tour. These land tours might include a train ride to Fairbanks and Denali National Park. And pioneering spirits often venture to Skagway, gateway to the Yukon Territory and home to the Gold Rush that took place more than 100 years ago.
"People feel a lot of emotions when they're up there," Cash said. "There is something magical about Alaska. It's humbling and expansive." Cash has traveled to Alaska many times, and everyone on her staff has been there at least once. "Our services are free," she said. "And we have plenty of inside scoop to share with folks."
Located at 656 High Street, Magic Cruises & Tours has been doing business in Downtown Worthington since 1988. The family-owned-and-operated travel agency is manned with a staff of travel experts who can share their firsthand experiences about several destinations--including Alaska.
