My favorite place in Alaska is any one of the skate parks. Since I'm a girl and I skateboard, I learn to deal with guys trying to tell me I'm doing things wrong.
Lots of different people come to the skate parks. The skate parks aren't THAT wonderful, but for those of us who like to skate, they are a nice place to meet new people.
Since the skate parks are around, it gives teenagers a place to go and to have something to do. And it's cool to go to the skate parks for these reasons.
