Anchorage

— 4 nights

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.
Change things up with a short trip to Boat Tours & Water Sports in Whittier (about 1h 25 min away). There's lots more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, trek along Flattop Mountain Trail, examine the collection at Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center, and tour the old-fashioned way with a train tour.

To find traveler tips, other places to visit, photos, and other tourist information, use the Anchorage tour builder app.

Sacramento to Anchorage is an approximately 8-hour flight. You can also drive. The time zone difference moving from Pacific Standard Time to Alaska Standard Time is minus 1 hour. When traveling from Sacramento in June, plan for colder days and a bit cooler nights in Anchorage: temperatures range from 66°F by day to 51°F at night. You will have some time to spend on the 30th (Wed) before leaving for home.

The Last Frontier
The country's largest state, Alaska is also its least densely populated. America's final frontier, the state lies on the Arctic Circle and features some of the highest mountains in the United States. Today, several million people flock annually to the state's pristine wilderness areas, which shelter a diverse plant and animal life and offer a great selection of things to do. Tailor-made for adventurous types wishing to leave civilization behind, Alaska can also be an extremely expensive vacation destination, with few transportation options and much of its land accessible only by plane or helicopter.
