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.
Step out of Anchorage to go to Palmer and see Independence Mine State Historical Park, which is approximately 1h 35 min away. The adventure continues: get to know the fascinating history of Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, stroll through Flattop Mountain Trail, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Alaska Zoo, and tour the old-fashioned way with a train tour.

For reviews, more things to do, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Anchorage trip planner.

If you are flying in from Brazil, the closest major airport is Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. In September, daytime highs in Anchorage are 16°C, while nighttime lows are 7°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
