Anchorage, the largest city in Alaska, is home to almost half of the people living in this great wide-open frontier.
With a diverse cosmopolitan population, high-rise office buildings and brand name retail stores, Anchorage is much more modern and 'American' than most people would expect.
Major points of interest in Anchorage itself include the Anchorage Museum of History and Art, the Alaska Native Heritage Center, the Oscar Anderson House and the Alaska Experience Center, all of which focus on either the history or the natural beauty of Alaska.
37 miles south of Anchorage is the Alyeska Resort in Girdwood - Alaska's largest winter sports complex. It offers excellent ski runs as well as magnificent views from the top of Mount Alyeska. Most of the other major attractions in Alaska are within a few hours drive of Anchorage including Denali National Park, Katmai National Park and Portage Glacier.
Hotels in Anchorage are mainly located in two clusters – in downtown Anchorage and near the Anchorage International Airport, 2 miles to the south of downtown.
