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: tour the old-fashioned way with a train tour, identify plant and animal life at Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, see the interesting displays at Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center, and hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour.

For photos, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, read Anchorage online driving holiday planner .

San Jose to Anchorage is an approximately 8.5-hour combination of flight and car. You can also do a combination of train, flight, and car; or do a combination of bus, ferry, and taxi. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from San Jose to Anchorage. When traveling from San Jose in September, plan for much colder days and little chillier nights in Anchorage: temperatures range from 57°F by day to 44°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 9th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
