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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Anchorage: Palmer (Musk Ox Farm & Independence Mine State Historical Park). Next up on the itinerary: steep yourself in history at Alaska Native Heritage Center, get to know the fascinating history of Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, identify plant and animal life at Potter Marsh Bird Sanctuary, and take in the dramatic natural features at Portage Glacier.

To see where to stay, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, read our Anchorage trip itinerary planner.

In August, plan for daily highs up to 66°F, and evening lows to 53°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 31st (Sat) so you can travel back home.
