Anchorage – a destination of awe-inspiring beauty difficult to rival. Watch this travel guide video to see why Anchorage is one of Alaska’s greatest vacation spots.
The city of #Anchorage lies in Alaska’s mountainous south and is home to around 40 percent of all Alaskans. At the height of summer, Anchorage basks in 22 hours of sunlight, with the sun barely dipping below the horizon, making it an excellent #vacation destination for those looking to pack a lot into their trip.
#Explore the Flattop Mountain trails which serve up some of the best views in the state. Learn the traditional dances and games of Alaska’s first peoples at the Alaska Native Heritage Centre or stock up on stories and folklore from the Last Frontier at the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Centre. Hang out at the dock at Seward, a picturesque fishing outpost or set sail to the Kenai Fjords National Park. Marvel as deep-sea giants breach the surface of these still waters. Climb aboard a seaplane or helicopter and soar from Seward out to the Godwin Glacier.
Alaska is a state famous for its rugged terrain and endless recreational opportunities, and a vacation Anchorage does not disappoint.
