Everybody's talking about its governor, but let's talk about Alaska's glaciers and glorious beauty. One of the most popular ways to experience Alaska is by cruise, according to folks at AAA-Mid-Atlantic. "Alaska is often considered a once-in-a-lifetime trip for many travelers," says Julie Kelly, who works in the Timonium branch of the auto club. That's why they're hosting a series of free travel seminars called "On Stage Alaska."

The program includes a film about Alaska, info from travel experts and cruise planning tips. You don't have to be a member of AAA to take part, but you may need a reservation. The first seminar is tonight in Columbia at the Hilton Inn. More dates to follow in White Marsh, Annapolis, Westminster and Frederick. To stake your claim, call 410-616-1900.
