The City of Lights and Flowers

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.
Make the 1st (Thu) an awe-inspiring day at Chugach State Park. There's much more to do: see the world from above with Alpine Air Alaska, sample the tasty concoctions at Double Shovel Cider Company, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, and hike along Virgin Creek Falls Trail.

To find other places to visit, more things to do, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Anchorage road trip site.

Fresno to Anchorage is an approximately 9-hour flight. You can also drive. The time zone changes from Pacific Standard Time to Alaska Standard Time, which is usually a -1 hour difference.
