Visiting a new city can be stressful if you don’t know where you’re going. To put your mind at ease feel free to check out the Anchorage City Tour with Gray Line of Alaska
in the downtown area for a three-hour bus tour of the city. You will be able to see and hear about Anchorage’s history from its settlement in 1915 to what you see today. If you want to see the sights on your own first stop by the ACVB Log Cabin Visitor Information Center
. Here you can create an itinerary for your whole stay in Anchorage. You can also take a one-hour drive from downtown Anchorage and pick up the Portage Glacial Boat Tour
. The trip takes approximately one hour and you will be impressed with the majestic Portage Glacier. A forest service representative narrates while you and your family have an experience of a lifetime.
Your trip to Anchorage would not be complete without experiencing the great summer Salmon runs. Head over to the Campbell Creek Greenbelt
in the Midtown area for a firsthand fishing experience. You can bike, hike, cross-country ski, roller blade, or jog on the greenbelt for miles. Take care in the winter, because the moose roam freely. Also located in Midtown is the Alaska Heritage Library Museum
. The museum was created in 1968 to give visitors a peak into Native Alaskan culture and history. While at this Wells Fargo museum you can explore Native Alaskan artwork, clothing, kayaks, and weaponry. Don’t forget to check out the Alaska Museum of Natural History
before you leave Midtown. The museum displays artifacts from a hundred million years of Alaska’s natural history. It features the largest exhibits of Alaskan rock, mineral, and fossil collections in the state.
