The City of Lights and Flowers

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Whittier (Portage Pass Trail & Boat Tours & Water Sports), Palmer (Horseback Riding Tours & Musk Ox Farm) and Bearpaw River Brewing Company (in Wasilla). Make the 21st (Mon) an awe-inspiring day at Chugach State Park. Spend the 17th (Thu) exploring nature at McHugh Creek Day Use Area. Next up on the itinerary: admire all the interesting features of Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, get to know the resident critters at Alaska Zoo, examine the collection at Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center, and tour the old-fashioned way with a train tour.

For reviews, more things to do, photos, and other tourist information, use the Anchorage day trip planning app.
