Anchorage

days
Anchorage

Home to nearly half of Alaska's population, the port city of Anchorage covers a staggering area of over 4,900 sq km (1,900 sq mi) surrounded by mountains.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Earthquake Park and Point Woronzof. Escape the urban bustle at Chugach National Forest and Musk Ox Farm. Venture out of the city with trips to Friends of Eagle River Nature (in Eagle River), Girdwood (Crow Creek Mine, Alyeska Ski Area, & more) and Whittier (Anton Anderson Memorial Tunnel, Kayaking & Canoeing, & more). There's still lots to do: explore the activities along Russian River, engage your brain at Imaginarium Discovery Center, get engrossed in the history at Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum, and admire the landmark architecture of Alaska Railroad Depot.

For where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Anchorage itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. In June in Anchorage, expect temperatures between 22°C during the day and 12°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 10th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
