After picking up your Motorhome from ABC, you might not be quite ready to hit the road. Anchorage offers some fun ways to add extra memories to your Alaskan adventure trip. We have some ideas of how to spend that first day in town.
The Alaska Zoo
One of the top things visitors want out of a trip to Alaska is wildlife sightings. The Alaska Zoo offers you a chance to see those animals in a beautiful urban forest setting. There are the usual Alaskan biggies including moose and polar bears mixed with the more exotic snow leopard and Siberian tiger. The best time to visit is morning before the tempartures get too warm for some of the animals.
The Anchorage Museum features world class exhibits of native Alaskan art and artifacts, some from the Smithsonian. There are displays about the history of Alaska and great displays of local artists. For the kids, the Imaginarium section of the museum offers hands on science displays (that are pretty fun for the adults too). The gift shop has a wonderful selection of local art to bring home to friends and family.
Alaska Native Heritage Center
On the way out of Anchorage heading north, is the Alaska Native Heritage Center. The park features displays showing examples of houses and artifacts from the different native Alaskan cultures. It's located in a lovely wooded location where guests are free to walk around and experience the different areas.
