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.
Escape the urban bustle at Kayaking & Canoeing and Hatcher Pass. Popular historic sites such as Alaska Native Heritage Center and Tony Knowles Coastal Trail are in your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Fishing Charters & Tours (in Whittier) and Palmer (Pioneer Falls & Independence Mine State Historical Park). Make the 18th (Sun) an awe-inspiring day at Chugach State Park. The adventure continues: look for all kinds of wild species at Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, meet the residents at Alaska Zoo, admire the natural beauty at Alaska Botanical Garden, and cruise along Seward Hwy.

In August, daytime highs in Anchorage are 66°F, while nighttime lows are 53°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
