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.
Visiting Kayaking & Canoeing and Seward Hwy will get you outdoors. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Russian River Falls and Hatcher Pass. Step out of Anchorage with an excursion to Palmer Visitor Information Center in Palmer--about 1h 05 min away. Make the 1st (Sat) an awe-inspiring day at Chugach State Park. There's still lots to do: indulge your thirst for a good beer at Midnight Sun Brewing Co., see the interesting displays at The Roundhouse at Alyeska, take in the dramatic natural features at Beluga Point, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Virgin Creek Falls Trail.

To see photos, traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Anchorage travel itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airport is Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. In May in Anchorage, expect temperatures between 17°C during the day and 6°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
