Anchorage — 2 nights

The City of Lights and Flowers

Home to nearly half of Alaska's population, the port city of Anchorage covers a staggering area of over 4,900 sq km (1,900 sq mi) surrounded by mountains.
Attractions like Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center and Tony Knowles Coastal Trail make great kid-friendly stops. The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Alaska Native Heritage Center, identify plant and animal life at Potter Marsh Bird Sanctuary, take a memorable drive along Seward Hwy, and get to know the resident critters at Alaska Zoo.

Alaska travel guide

The Last Frontier
The country's largest state, Alaska is also its least densely populated. America's final frontier, the state lies on the Arctic Circle and features some of the highest mountains in the United States. Today, several million people flock annually to the state's pristine wilderness areas, which shelter a diverse plant and animal life and offer a great selection of things to do. Tailor-made for adventurous types wishing to leave civilization behind, Alaska can also be an extremely expensive vacation destination, with few transportation options and much of its land accessible only by plane or helicopter.
