Denali Village: It Comes And Goes

Dinali Village near Mt. McKinley in Alaska is situated between Fairbanks and Anchorage.
But if you want to visit here -- or stay here -- you can only come between May and mid September.
The rest of the year the whole place is locked up tight as a drum and closed down. The buildings are shuttered and the electricity is shut off.
This is basically a five-month town. It either thrives or it's desolate.
And when it's open it really, really thrives. For example, I'm just five months the Subway sandwich place here does more business than any other Sunway in the country.
