Among the northernmost cities on Earth, Anchorage is a place with big-city amenities including fine restaurants, museums, theaters and an excellent music scene. Creating the backdrop are the salmon-rich waters of Cook Inlet and the 5,000-foot-plus peaks of Chugach State Park. Within a short drive from downtown are dozens of wilderness adventures and a short plane ride opens up the possibility of almost any type of wild adventure. Anchorage features dozens of parks and 122 miles of paved bike paths. Warmed by a maritime climate, spend the day fishing Ship Creek downtown, hiking the nearby mountains, photographing glaciers or dining at a four-star restaurant.
