Please help me with my Alaska itinerary

I plan to arrive in ANC on Friday night and leave on Monday night in September. I will travel solo and I am more interested in national parks. Here is my planned itinerary:
Friday: Drive to Seward
Saturday: Take the Kenai Fjords day cruise. Stay at Seward (or Drive back to ANC?)
Sunday: Fly to FAI, explore Denali then stay at FAI. Hope can catch the northern light in the evening.
Monday: FAI-ANC, then explore the museums around ANC. Fly back to BOS at night.

I just feel like too much driving is involved. Any suggestions? Thanks!

You posted in Trip Advisor with more specific dates. Skip Denali altogether since the shuttle bus system won't be operating anymore during your time there. Concentrate on the Kenai Peninsula and Seward.

Plenty to keep you busy for 3 days between Seward, Whittier, Anchorage and everything in-between. Tripadvisor and many similar posts here should provide everything you need.
