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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Palmer (Musk Ox Farm & Independence Mine State Historical Park). Make the 28th (Tue) an awe-inspiring day at Chugach State Park. Spend the 31st (Fri) on the rails with a train tour. And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center, explore the striking landscape at Portage Glacier, identify plant and animal life at Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, and get engrossed in the history at Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum.

For other places to visit, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Anchorage tour planning app .

In August, plan for daily highs up to 66°F, and evening lows to 53°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 1st (Sat) so you can travel back home.
