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.
Explore Anchorage's surroundings by going to Musk Ox Farm (in Palmer) and Rail Tours (in Whittier). Spend the 20th (Wed) exploring nature at McHugh Creek Day Use Area. There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Anchorage Museum, get engrossed in the history at Alaska Aviation Museum, delve into the lush surroundings at Chugach National Forest, and explore the activities along Cook Inlet.

For photos, maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Anchorage vacation builder.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airport is Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 15°C in September, and nighttime lows around 7°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
