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.
Head to Anchorage Market & Festival and Anchorage 5th Avenue Mallfor some retail therapy. Escape the urban bustle at Alaska Zoo and Flattop Mountain Trail. Change things up with these side-trips from Anchorage: Fishing Charters & Tours (in Cooper Landing), Wasilla (Bearpaw River Brewing Company & Settlers Bay Golf Course) and Palmer (Pioneer Falls & Independence Mine State Historical Park). Make the 31st (Fri) an awe-inspiring day at Chugach State Park. Next up on the itinerary: look for all kinds of wild species at Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, take a peaceful walk through Chugach National Forest, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Alyeska Ski Area, and hike along Friends of Eagle River Nature.
