From Russian Jack Park to the scenic Foothills neighborhood, a car is the best way to explore Anchorage. The area tends to be a haven for those looking to explore nature, but also greets those attending business. Picking up a rental car at the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC) allows you to visit the Chugach National Park. Less than 20 minutes from the airport, your experience with the Alaskan Wilderness can begin with a brief hike and a climb on a glacier at this park.
Two major roads connect the city; these are the Seward Highway 1 and the Minnesota Parkway, which becomes Walter J. Hickel Parkway midway through the city. At the Alaska Railroad Depot in downtown, there are many trains leaving for cities deeper in the Alaska countryside. The Port of Alaska sees many inbound and outbound freighters, along with a cruise ship terminal. At the Alaska Aviation Museum, you'll explore the state's rich history of using airplanes to bring supplies to communities not accessible by roads.
Flying time between the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) and Anchorage takes three and a half hours. If Anchorage isn't your final destination, catching a connecting flight, train or cruise ship is easy in this metropolitan city. This town began as the home of the Dena’ina Native Americans. To learn more about their heritage, visit the Alaska Native Heritage Center.
