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.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Alaska ATV Adventures, Thunderbird Falls, Point Woronzof, and other attractions. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Tony Knowles Coastal Trail and The Roundhouse at Alyeska. Step off the beaten path and head to Chugach State Park and Beluga Point. Get out of town with these interesting Anchorage side-trips: Palmer (Independence Mine State Historical Park & Musk Ox Farm). There's still lots to do: stroll through Byron Glacier Trail, walk around Earthquake Park, identify plant and animal life at Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, and take an in-depth tour of Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum.

To see maps, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, use the Anchorage travel itinerary planner.

In October, daily temperatures in Anchorage can reach 45°F, while at night they dip to 32°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 4th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
