Nenana Travel Guide: 29 reviews and 61 photos


Nenana is a cool little town that is located at mile 305 just off off the Parks Highway. A cool time to visit would be between Mid-April to Mid May as that is the time the Spring Ice break-up occurs and some lucky winner takes home about $300,000 from guessing the correct time of the break-up!! But Nenana has alot to offer for the visitor at any time of year.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great place for the Alaskan experience!
  • Cons:Far from Anchorage
  • In a nutshell:You'll enjoy your visit!
  • Last visit to Nenana: Nov 2003
