  • the best view of the city without having to take a plane. It can be in a short time by car from anywhere in the city. Go warm as it makes between 5 and 8 degrees less than in the city and there is enough wind. Is possible to see animals wild.

  • Great hiking in summer. Expect to pay five bucks to park. Winter skiing is great, but it's rustic, with older lifts and very little grooming. They also don't make snow here so it might open a lot later in the season depending on mother nature.
  • Great tubing on the weekends. $15 for adults, 1.5 hrs
  • Fun little ski lodge and tubing for a great price!
  • It was a beautiful and nice hike. The views at the top were amazing!
  • It's a good hike and great views

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.
