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.
Take a break from Anchorage with a short trip to Independence Mine State Historical Park in Palmer, about 1h 35 min away. There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center, look for all kinds of wild species at Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, tour in style with a train tour, and contemplate the waterfront views at Cook Inlet.
