  • I've driven in various u.s. roads, but, without a doubt, this was the most beautiful. There are more than 40 km between the gigantic mountains with snow-covered tops of each side the inlets surrounded by mountains. Really, a breathtaking landscape.

Where to stay in Anchorage

Anchorage hotels increase room rates during the height of the tourist season, but you can visit the area economically any time of year by choosing a budget-friendly bed and breakfast or small inn. The city's downtown area contains the priciest rooms; most are offered by chain hotels. You can find less expensive rooms at a cluster of hotels located in Midtown, a largely commercial neighborhood with a good selection of restaurants and shops.
