ADVENTURE. EXPLORE. EXPERIENCE

The Municipality of Anchorage, which includes the communities of Girdwood, Eagle River, and Chugiak, stretches as far south as Portage and north up to Eklutna. Alaska's largest city, its roughly 292,000 residents comprise 40-percent of the state’s total population, yet it still manages to maintain that quintessential small-town Alaskan feel.

Food Variety - even in a Truck!

While salmon is definitely king in Alaska, Anchorage is a foodie town that offers something for every appetite and budget. Grab a reindeer or polish sausage (or a plain all-beef hot dog if you must) from one of the many gourmet hot dog carts that dot the streets of downtown. At the weekly Spenard Food Truck Carnival, held under the iconic windmill in the Chilkoot Charlie's parking lot from May to September, you'll find everything from smokehouse BBQ to Guatemalan food to fanciful sweets.

 

Restaurant Dining

Snow City Café is a perennial breakfast favorite (the King Crab benedict is worth the wait), while Moose’s Tooth in midtown is Anchorage’s go-to spot for gourmet pizza and locally brewed beer. For special occasions, it's hard to top the food – and the views – from the Crow’s Nest, which sits atop the Hotel Captain Cook.

 

Outdoor Enthusiasts

For outdoor enthusiasts, adventure can be found right outside your door. With 85 playgrounds and 250-miles of interconnected, multi-use trails and greenbelts, you can access wide-open spaces from almost every neighborhood. Walk, run, or bike the 11-mile Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, accessible from many points downtown, for spectacular views of Cook Inlet and Denali. The trail is also popular with Alaska’s wildlife, so keep your eyes open for moose, bear, and even Belugas in the Inlet.

Backyard Living

Or leave the city behind and head 15-minutes into the hills to explore Chugach State Park's 280-mile trail system. The most popular is Flattop Mountain, which offers 360° views of Anchorage, Cook Inlet, and the Alaska Range, whether from the mountain’s summit or the scenic overlook.

 

Winter Sport Enthusiasts

In winter, skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts can head south to Girdwood and hit the slopes at Alyeska or, a bit closer to home, Hilltop Ski Area. The looped Hillside Park Trails in Far North Bicentennial Park are perfect for cross-country skiers, while more adventurous souls can head to Powerline Pass for some backcountry skiing.
