In 2010 we spent the 4th of July in Whittier. It was wonderful. To think such a small little town could put on such a nice 4th is hard to believe. We throughly enjoyed it. Plenty of places to stay on the way in if you don't want to pay to take your camper through the tunnel, or take it with you and stay in Whittier. Where ever you decide, relax and enjoy it.
In 2010, we were in Tok for the 4Th. We were staying at the Sourdough, which is a great experience all by itself. The town had a parade, which was great, only about two blocks long, and took a good five minutes to pass, lol. There was also a barbeque at the park in the center of town. This was the summer that it seemed to rain 24/7 but we still had a great trip.
