I came to this forum hoping to get some Alaska info from some mommies that live there. I will be going to Juneau for 2.5 months (August to mid October). My DH got a temporary job assignment there, and really, for us this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. So my DS (who will be 15 months in August) and i will be going with him.
I am super excited, as well as nervous (looooooong flight, time change, packing ect)
I was hoping to get some insite as to what to even pack for that time of year in Juneau. (Shorts? Pants? Both? Heavy sweaters or coats? Boots or sandles?) As well as anything that we really should do or see.(coming from a local and not a touristy standpoint)
Also, I am a SAHM so if there are any places to take the little one to during the day that would be great to know about. Or maybe if there are mom meetup groups around? Here at home (Columbus, Ohio) i of course have gotten to know over time about library toddler events, what the best play grounds are, and have memberships to all the museams and the zoo. I am a little nervous about not having those kind of activites to get an active 15 month old out of our hotel room. (ps we are staying at the Juneau Hotel right downtown)
Thanks in advance for any information!!
SAHM to 4 cats, DS 5/09, DD 3/12 and 3# due 4/15. Home birthing, non vax, anti circ, co-sleeping, breastfeeding, real food eating pretty darn crunchy mama.
