Sitka, Alaska

Sitka, Alaska can only be reached by boat or plane, and the roads only extend along the coast approximately ten miles in each direction.  It is very picturesque, with a backdrop of high mountains.
Some unusual facts:  a Russian princess is buried in the cemetery, and this was where magnetic north was discovered.
