A quick tour of Alaska's biggest city
Explore Alaska's surprisingly wild metropolis. We'll take a spin around Anchorage and I'll tell you all about Anchorage's history and people. We'll visit scenic and historic spots as well as its more contemporary downtown. Generally the tour will include the historic locale of Ship Creek where the town was founded, a guided tour through Earthquake park, a visit to the world's largest float-plane base at Lake Hood and a trip to one of America's most scenic highways, the Seward highway where we might just see a whale if we're lucky. And last, a visit to Arctic Valley to visit a shuttered cold-war Nike nuclear missile base that is now a ski resort.
The tour can be tailored to your interests.
