Visit the Original Valdez Townsite
The original Valdez townsite, known locally as "Old Town" is only a few miles out of town alongside the Richardson Highway. Walk through the original town streets and see the foundations where Valdez stood before the town was relocated following the 1964 Good Friday Earthquake.
