Anchorage Travel Guide

Intriguing Anchorage, set amidst spectacular mountains and the sea, is Alaska's only metropolis. Home to nearly half of Alaska's population, Anchorage is extremely diverse -- modern high-rises rub shoulders with log cabins, high-speed trams co-exist with dog-sleds. Introduce yourself to the special elements of Alaskan life and culture here -- spend a day or two soaking up the natural beauty and stocking up on your supplies before you take off into the Alaskan wilderness.

Situated on the Cook Islet and west of the Chugach mountains, Anchorage is the largest city in Alaska. It is a modern city with high rise buildings in steel and glass and this prompts the true Alaskan to say that Anchorage is located just outside Alaska! Just a half hour drive away from the wild and beautiful wilderness of the forests, this city is a major gateway for all tourists wanting to explore the rest of Alaska.

Ever seen a live moose? You know – the animal with the jagged antlers. Chances are you will bump into one of these mild creatures while in Anchorage. There are over 1600 of them within the city limits. So watch out!
