Default Hi there,

Hi, I lived in Anchorage almost all my life. 14 years. I am headed off to college now, and am considering goin back up there.

There is a fair amount of stuff to do. If you like the outdoors, go walk, bike, or jog the tony knowles coastal trail. it's beautiful. We have a thing called saturday market which is downtown, but I don't think that goes on in the winter. its all fresh fruits and vegetables and stuff. We have the performing arts center, an earthquake exhibit across from the downtown people mover bus station. There is also the Oscar anderson house. If you want addresses I can get some.

We also have some great museums. The native museum and the history and art museum as well. If you have more questions let me know.

Daniel

Not to mention the bar scene. Plenty of that in Anchorage. Some good...some bad. Pretty much any type you want. Used to be more concerts I think. Seems they have tapered way off on that. But definately check out the museums.

Default More Suggestions

Hi, I would also recommend if you can get out of town for a day, take a trip down to Seward, and check out the Sea Life Center. I went there on an overnight class field trip in 6th grade, and it was the coolest thing. Walk on the beach and you might catch a glimpse of sea animals. When we were there, we saw a bunch of otters playing in the water.

For great views, i would recommend the Crow's Nest Restaurant. that's on the 20th floor of the Hotel Captain Cook. Speaking of Captain Cook, you should check out the Captain Cook viewpoint. Awesome views!! It's called Resolution Park, and it's on Third Avenue
Enjoy your trip. It is truly one of the best places in the world to live and visit.
