Alaska travel guide

Alaska - Anchorage & Around (Chapter)

10th Edition Apr 2012

This is the Anchorage & Around chapter from Lonely Planet’s Alaska guidebook.

A big city in the wilderness, Anchorage mixes hiking trails and traffic jams, small art galleries and Big Oil. Over 100 miles of city trails meander through hidden greenbelts and a creek splits downtown where anglers line up to catch trophy salmon. The wilderness is never far (behind the municipality is Chugach, the nation’s third-largest state park), which is why Anchorage’s young population (the average age is 32) is an active one.

  • Spending an afternoon at the new Anchorage Museum, soaking up Alaskan culture and art
  • maps
  • Pedal the scenic Tony Knowles Coastal Trail with views of the Alaska Range on the way to Kincaid Park
  • transport
  • Watch the amazing bore tide fill Turnagain Arm in one swoop near Beluga Point
  • restaurants & accommodation
  • Check out the artistic salmon spawning in Anchorage during Wild Salmon on Parade

Coverage includes: Anchorage and around, Seward Highway, Girdwood, and around, Portage Glacier, Glenn Highway and Palmer.
