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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Russian River Falls and Paint a Scarf Alaska. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Anchorage: Palmer (Pioneer Falls & Fishing Charters & Tours). And it doesn't end there: take in the dramatic natural features at College Fiord, steep yourself in history at Indian Valley Mine & Gifts, get outside with Turnagain Arm, and let the kids burn off some steam at Lake Spenard.

In April in Anchorage, expect temperatures between 48°F during the day and 31°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
