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.
Anchorage is known for historic sites, wildlife, museums, nature, and trails. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: appreciate the extensive heritage of Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, look for all kinds of wild species at Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, explore the striking landscape at Portage Glacier, and tour the old-fashioned way with a train tour.

To find photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, read Anchorage trip planner .

In October, daily temperatures in Anchorage can reach 45°F, while at night they dip to 32°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
