Valdez is between Prince William Sound and the Chugach Mountains. Due to an earthquake and the resulting tsunami in 1964, there are no historical buildings. The Valdez Convention and visitors bureau has lots of information on the area.
Places to see: The Valdez Museum and Historical Archive, the Wrangell-St Elias National Park, Keystone Canyon, Bridal Veil Falls. Thompson Pass has the most spectacular view.
