Anchorage - A City Like No Other   by David Dutton

Anchorage Hotels

This area is one with some very rugged outdoor country. Anchorage is a surprise for visitors. The countryside is so diverse that there are many things to see in just a few miles. From mountains and glaciers to the wildlife that lives here, the modern city is in complete contrast. The outdoors however, takes the lead hands down when it comes to exploring.

Hunting, fishing, hiking and camping will be just a few of the outdoor adventures in Anchorage, Alaska. The must-see aspect of Anchorage includes museums, botanical gardens, the Anchorage Zoo and Earthquake Park. There are historical buildings in the downtown area of Anchorage. This is a pleasure for those who are interested in architecture. The zoo features many types of animals. There are seals, bears and foxes just to name a few. The animals have lived here for many years and you may see a few when on your hiking trips.

Finding a place to stay is just as diverse as the outdoors. There are choices from cabins where you can rough it just like the first settlers here did. Camping in a tent is another option. If this is not your idea of the kind of place you would choose, there are many hotels that are known for their high-end accommodations.

When traveling to Anchorage, make sure and bring warm clothes. It can be quite cold at certain times of the year. Visit the theaters, enjoy the countryside and when you leave you will be thinking about the next trip you are going to make to Anchorage. Do you want to know about more cool places to visit and some cool ways to get discounts on travel?
