Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

Even though Anchorage is situated right on the edge of the vast Alaskan wilderness, living in the city often can feel like you are in the heart of nature. On clear nights, residents may sometimes see the northern lights from their homes. For outdoor recreation there are rafts, kayaking, or rented boat tours that can take you fishing or even off the beaten path to see unparalleled wildlife and stunning glaciers.

Culturally, Anchorage is an epicenter of Native American and First Nation art. For a fun day out there are plenty of museums and zoos, such as the Alaskan Zoo which showcases a wide array of native and exotic wildlife. The Alaskan Aviation Museum showcases how integral the history of air travel is to the region with a collection of vintage aircraft and memorabilia. Scenic views can be found in and around Anchorage, with popular spots such as Beluga Point for whale watching or the Alyeska Aerial Tram which goes a stunning 2,300 feet in the air.


The People Mover bus system includes regular all-day service routes on many of the city's major streets. Many routes terminate at the Downtown Transit Center. Usually, the services are only once an hour, though they recently went through some redesigns to better serve the people of Anchorage.
