Things to do

Alaskan heritage in Anchorage

While you could easily spend your whole vacation enjoying the parks and waters surrounding Anchorage, the city is also a great place to learn more about the history of Last Frontier. Head to the Anchorage Museum to see indigenous Alaskan artifacts from the Smithsonian Institution collection, and hands-on science and art exhibits that will be a big hit with the kids. At the Alaska Native Heritage Center, interactive demonstrations bring centuries of history to life in dances, games, and songs. Outdoors, you can walk around a lake to 6 villages with life-size dwellings that demonstrate the different traditions of Native peoples.


Enjoying the gulf in Anchorage

Alaska is known as the Last Frontier, and the city of Anchorage is no exception, with endless recreational opportunities by land or sea. With a prime location on an inlet of the Gulf of Alaska, water activities are especially popular, including day cruises that take you to see ocean wildlife and glaciers. You might also spot whales from the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, an 11-mile multi-use path that starts downtown and has views of Mount McKinley, the tallest peak in North America. Choose a downtown Anchorage vacation rental for easy access to the trail, as well as international eateries, sidewalk food stands, coffee shops, and local breweries.   


Seasonal activities in Anchorage

Summer brings the mildest weather and longest days to this northern city, making it the ideal season to enjoy outdoor activities like hiking and fishing. May through September also is the best time to go on a whale-watching excursion, as beluga, blue, gray, humpback, and orca varieties all migrate their way through nearby waters. The colder months bring their own brand of fun though, with many slopes opening by November for skiing and snowboarding. If you visit during this time, look for an Anchorage vacation rental with a fireplace. It’ll feel extra cozy after a long day on the snow.

Natural features

Exploring the parks around Anchorage

As the biggest city in Alaska, Anchorage is a gateway to many stunning national parks, preserves and forests nearby. Chugach State Park, just a few miles from downtown, feels light years away from the city, with nearly 300 miles of trails to be explored on foot, bike, or horseback. Easy paths the whole family can tackle lead to waterfalls, salmon streams, and spots for berry picking, while longer, challenging excursions provide more opportunities to spot the moose, beavers, and bears that roam the area. Beyond the state park, Chugach National Forest offers limitless adventures in a preserve the size of New Hampshire.
