The City of Lights and Flowers

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.
Let the collections at Imaginarium Discovery Center and Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum capture your imagination. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Alaska Museum of Transportation and Industry. The adventure continues: grab your bike and head to Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, hike along Friends of Eagle River Nature, appreciate the extensive heritage of Point Woronzof, and tee off at Anchorage Golf Course.

The Last Frontier
The country's largest state, Alaska is also its least densely populated. America's final frontier, the state lies on the Arctic Circle and features some of the highest mountains in the United States. Today, several million people flock annually to the state's pristine wilderness areas, which shelter a diverse plant and animal life and offer a great selection of things to do. Tailor-made for adventurous types wishing to leave civilization behind, Alaska can also be an extremely expensive vacation destination, with few transportation options and much of its land accessible only by plane or helicopter.
