Anchorage Travel Guide

Anchorage is Alaska’s Cultural Center

Nestled between the sea and the mountains, Anchorage is where urban amenities blend with natural beauty. Our Anchorage travel guide includes information about the area’s top things to do, from the center of the city to the heart of the Alaska wilderness. Take a wildlife tour during the day and return in time to enjoy fine dining, museums, and an array of entertainment at night. As the largest city in the state, Anchorage provides easy access to an international airport, cruise ships, ferry systems, and the Alaska Highway. Anchorage also serves as a central hub for Gray Line Alaska’s scenic train tours to and from Denali National Park.
