  • Even though it was cloudy and cold this morning, I decided to walk along the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail to get some needed exercise. I had only intended to walk from the start of the trail at 2nd Aven...  more »
  • You can sometimes see moose here. Be sure to give a mom with a calf wide berth. Like all moms with young they can get a bit cranky. Great place for a hike with pretty scenery.  more »
  • This is THE place for many sporting activities. Anchorage is a better city for having Kincaid Park. Just about every major aerobic sport short of swimming is possible. Also a great place to see wildli...  more »

  • Tons of trails to explore. We saw two female moose with their babies and two males. Be careful wandering the paths. I'd recommend allowing a significant chunk of time to explore.
  • Great facilities. Especially for kids. Fun place to go with family where you can watch airplanes land while eating BBQ and watching the bay.
  • Kincaid Park is a beautiful place. It has lots of open places for playing sports, nice hikes, cross-country skiing paths, and areas for parties and such. I highly recommend going here.
  • Like hills? They've got 'em. A variety of activities are enjoyed at this sprawling park, with two entrances. A 12 mile bike ride on the Tony Knowles Coastal trail from downtown finishes in a steep one mile climb into the park. If you are like me and and like to go in a circle, you'll keep going down Raspberry, take a left on Jewel Lake which connects to Spenard, then left again on Wisconsin and you are well on your way back to town. Always be on the lookout for moose, less common are bears. If you are cycling, courtesy use of the bell is appreciated! Kincaid park hosts a variety of activities year around - skiing, walking, running, single-track, picnicking, etc. - the trails tie into the Anchorage area trail system. Enjoy!
  • On a good sunny day, great place to do whatever plans you've got! Picnicking or walking the trail. Don't forget to bring a camera!

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.
