12. Root for your favorite axe-man at the Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show

Saw competition at the Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show in Ketchikan, Alaska

The Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show is one of the main attractions in the south Alaskan port of Ketchikan. Though it may feel heavily scripted at times, it’s still fun to root for the team they assign to you (go Canada!) and watch up close all the various lumberjack activities—axe throwing, log rolling, tandem sawing and so on. As they say, yo-ho!
