Anchorage Links Directory and Travel Resources

(Anchorage, Alaska - AK, USA)

Just a relatively short car trip from the wilds of Alaska, the growing city of Anchorage began its life as a simple railroad settlement. Today, the city is now home to close to 50 percent of the state's entire population and is central to Alaskan commerce and politics, despite the capital status being awarded to Juneau.

Sightseers in Anchorage are certainly well catered for, with top attractions coming in the form of the Alaska Native Heritage Center, a large number of very decent museums, and zoological gardens displaying Arctic wildlife. If you would like to get out and about during your visit, then choose between climbing to the peak of the nearby Flattop Mountain or hiking along the scenic Tony Knowles Coastal Trail.
