  • Earthquake Park is the perfect place for a walk or bike ride. This park is on the Knik Arm and the views are just spectacular!  more »
  • Located on an inlet, Earthquake Park is both beautiful and a sobering reminder of the damage done in 1964 when a 9.2 earthquake hit Anchorage.  more »
  • We were here in late June. It's on the way to Point Woronzof Overlook (definitely worth a visit), so we decided to stop and experience a thickly wooded area of Anchorage (Kincaid Park is another optio...  more »

  • Good park for hiking. Make sure you know what trail you're on, because I mindlessly wandered onto a separate trail which went from the park to Anchorage. Obviously a fault of my own, but there wasn't any signage for this until 1 mile up the trail. Whoops!
  • A really nice walk here with friends, even in the dead of winter. There is a large system of trails to take advantage of. There is interesting signage around describing the previous landscape before the quakes jumbled the area up. The park connects to the coastal trail so is accessible in multiple ways; such as by car, bike, or hike. We also have seen moose on several occasions in the general area of this park. Not too challenging of a stroll.
  • Beautiful park that connects to the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail. Educational plaques describe the 1969 Good Friday Earthquake and it's consequences.
  • Great place to run in the Spring or cross country ski in the winter. Paths are wide enough for sharing with bikes. You can explore the frozen ocean in the winter.
  • This is such a beautiful place to visit. I come here every chance I get!

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.
