5 Essential Anchorage Sights
Anchorage isn’t an easy city to categorize. Alaska’s biggest city — but not, as many people think, the state capital (that’s Juneau!) — often gets guff for being less “Alaskan” than places like Fairbanks (which is much, much colder during the winter) or, of course, the tiny towns and villages that pepper the rest of the state. While Anchorage does at times seem far more urban than the image people have of Alaska, it’s still very much of the state. Seriously: It’s not unusual to see a moose wandering down the city streets. Here, find five essential stops to learn about Anchorage and its place in Alaska and in the world.
