Planning our first trip to AK in late July through mid-August. Had originally wanted to do a PWS tour out of Whittier, with no visit to Cordova. However, Frommer's has convinced me that Cordova has much to offer and I'm wondering if taking the ferry from Whittier to Cordova (instead of the PWS tour) would allow us to see much or most of what we'd see on the tour boat. Can anyone advise?
Also, if we do the trip to Cordova, are we better off to ferry our car, or to leave behind and rent in Cordova. Would be spending one overnight there.
THANKS for your help.
