We have the second week in March off. Where should we go for a non-snowy vacation within a day of travel from Alaska?

We live in Alaska and would like to go someplace that at least feels warmish to us (no snow, temperatures above 50F during the day). We are not particularly interested in more than a day of travel on each end. We have passports but likely not enough time at this point to fuss with visas. I am a teacher and that's my spring break, so the dates are not flexible at all.
We like: national/state parks and general outdoorsy stuff (kayaking, hiking, snorkeling etc.), mild to moderate adventures, wandering around on foot and by public transit in real cities. Not interested in: sitting around on a beach for more than a half day, doing tons and tons of driving, extensive museum-going, shopping, gambling.
Previous successful vacations have covered pretty much any ground you can think of in Utah, Washington and the Big Island of Hawaii so we're trying not to repeat there. I lived in Los Angeles for a long time and have zero interest in going back. Beyond that, the world is our oyster.
