fun things to do while visiting
PEDAL THE COASTAL
Anchorage’s bike paths travel 135 miles through the city, and the crown jewel of the system is the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail. Rent a bike downtown, and take off on the 11-mile shoreside trail.
Strike it rich
Indian Valley and Crow Creek were the site of gold strikes at the end of the 19th century. Gold panning is still a common pursuit, and with a pan, persistence and a little patience, anyone has a shot at finding flakes of Alaska gold.
alaska art shopping
Find authentic Alaska works straight from the artist. Whether you seek out traditional Alaska Native art, innovative crafts from a young entrepreneur, or salmon or local candy to take home and share, Anchorage is the spot to find it. Here's something to sweeten the deal more: shopping in Anchorage is tax-free.
Local fare includes king crab, halibut and salmon, naturally. But there are a few curveballs in Anchorage cuisine. Try reindeer sausage, or veggies fresh from the nearby Matanuska Valley. Anchorage is also an under-the radar beer town, with more than a dozen breweries in the city.
Anchorage is home to many museums and historical attractions that present Alaska’s fascinating blend of Russian, Native, gold rush, and pioneer history from every imaginable angle.
Gain a better understanding of everything you'll see during your Alaska travels. Meet the people who have called Alaska home for thousands of years.
