Can't visit the Mat-Su Valley because you are stuck at home? No problem! We'll come to you, and give you something to do to break up the monotony!
The Mat-Su Convention & Visitors Bureau has created eight virtual jigsaws featuring noteworthy scenes, attractions and activities from around the Valley. You can virtually visit places like Denali State Park, Independence Mine, the Musk Ox Farm and Matanuska Glacier, and have a little fun while doing so. When you are done completing a puzzle, take a screenshot and submit it with a contest entry. You could win a $50 gift card to the Palmer Alehouse, Grape Tap or Denali Brewing Company. The contest runs through Memorial Day.
The virtual puzzle is a way to connect visitors to experiences in the Mat-Su Valley during these uncertain times. Right now, travel isn't encouraged to Alaska due to state mandates regarding the Covid-19 pandemic. Destinations around Alaska are playing it safe right now, but we will be ready to welcome you once it's safe to do so. Safety for our visitors, our communities and our residents are the top concern. Whether you live 40 or 4,000 miles away, know that the Mat-Su Valley will be worth your visit in the future. With wide open spaces and outdoor recreation around every bend in the road, we look forward to the time when we can welcome you back.
For now, stay safe, stay healthy and virtually visit us!
