Visit Anchorage, Alaska

Situated on the shores of Cook Inlet with a panoramic backdrop of the Chugach Mountains, Anchorage is the largest city in Alaska.

Home to approximately 260,000 people (nearly half the state’s population) there are some excellent museums, such as the Anchorage Museum of History and Art, the Alaska Heritage Museum and the Alaska Native Heritage Centre.

Shopping and entertainment in Anchorage

Thanks in part to the oil industry the city has the broadest variety of entertainment, restaurants and shops in Alaska but between the salmon-rich waters of Cook Inlet and the mighty peaks of the Chugach Mountains its apparent sophistication is paper-thin. Here you can often see moose grazing on suburban flower gardens - this is truly a city on the edge of the wilderness.
