Next up on the itinerary: get to know the fascinating history of Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, explore the activities along Lake Hood Harbor, admire the verdant scenery at Hatcher Pass, and indulge your thirst for a good beer at Midnight Sun Brewing Co..

Next up on the itinerary: take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mt. Marathon, appreciate the history behind Benny Benson Memorial, and take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour.
