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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Tony Knowles Coastal Trail and Oscar Anderson House Museum. Get in touch with nature at Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center and Potter Marsh Bird Sanctuary. Change things up with these side-trips from Anchorage: Fishing Charters & Tours (in Whittier) and Palmer (Independence Mine State Historical Park & Pioneer Falls). On the 3rd (Sun), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Arctic Valley Ski Area. Make the 5th (Tue) an awe-inspiring day at Chugach State Park. The adventure continues: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Alaska Zoo, contemplate the waterfront views at Cook Inlet, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Alyeska Ski Area, and examine the collection at Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center.

For other places to visit, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, use the Anchorage trip planning website .

In February, daily temperatures in Anchorage can reach 28°F, while at night they dip to 15°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
