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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Indian Valley Mine & Gifts and Palmer Visitor Information Center. Do some cultural sightseeing at Alaska Native Heritage Center and Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center. Go for a jaunt from Anchorage to Palmer to see Fishing Charters & Tours about 1h 05 min away. There's still lots to do: get to know the fascinating history of Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, admire all the interesting features of Fresh Spring Water at Mile 109, trek along Virgin Creek Falls Trail, and look for all kinds of wild species at Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center.

For where to stay, ratings, photos, and tourist information, use the Anchorage tour itinerary site .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 17°C in May, and nighttime lows around 6°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
