Southeast Alaska, often referred to as the Panhandle, includes the parts of the state that are west of the northern half of British Columbia – basically the southeastern portion of Alaska. Most of this area is actually national forest; the largest national forest in the United States known as the Tongass National Forest.

Southeast Alaska is known for its spectacular views, dramatic scenery and rainy climate. It is also the northern section of the Inside Passage. The Inside Passage is a protected waterway that begins in the Puget Sound in Washington. This region of Alaska includes the state capital, Juneau and is subsequently well populated; the 2010 census confirmed at least 71,616 inhabitants.
