Where in Alaska does in stay dark for 6 months?
Alaska doesn't stay dark for six months . It has LONG days and Short nights. It is only dark for six months straight on at the poles in winter, the sun is only a few degrees below the horizon at midday even in the middle of winter in northern Alaska, so nowhere in Alaska "stays dark" for six months.

How long is one night?
Is Alaska dark for six months out of the year?
No, that only happens at the north pole or south pole. Alaska has LONG days and short nights in the summer, and SHORT days and long nights in the winter. But unless you're north of the Arctic Circle, there's at least an hour of light each day. But it's tough having the sun come up just before lunch and go down right after! Down in the southern parts near Anchorage, there are several hours of light each day even in the middle of winter.

Why does Alaska have such long days of daylight?
During the summer months the sun shines on its northern most point of the earth. In Alaska and other northern areas this causes long days, in some cases daylight is visible twenty four hours a day with the night being more akin to dusk or dawn. The opposite is also true, during the winter the nights are abnormally long and the days extremely short.
