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 these side-trips from Anchorage: Palmer (Independence Mine State Historical Park & Musk Ox Farm). Spend the 5th (Fri) on the rails with a train tour. Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the long history of Alaska Native Heritage Center, look for all kinds of wild species at Potter Marsh Bird Sanctuary, appreciate the extensive heritage of Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, and examine the collection at Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center.

For more things to do, where to stay, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Anchorage online holiday planner .

Expect a daytime high around 69°F in July, and nighttime lows around 55°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
