Overview Of The Port Of Anchorage

About Anchorage
Anchorage is in the south central part of the U.S. state of Alaska.

The main downtown area is quite small and easily walkable. Most attractions are located between C and L Streets and 3rd and 8th Avenues.

The Anchorage Museum and Alaska Native Heritage Centre are two places of interest to visit.

Take a city tour or cycle/walk along the 11 mile Tony Knowles Coastal Trail which runs along Anchorage's coastline, beginning downtown.

Alaska has the greatest concentration of glaciers in the USA. The nearest is 50 miles south of Anchorage, called Portage Glacier.

Denali National Park is home to a variety of wildlife and Mount McKinley is North America's tallest peak.

At Alaska Wildlife Conservation Centre, south of Anchorage, injured and orphaned animals are rescued and rehabilitated in their wildlife preserve. Moose, bear, musk oxen, caribou and bison are kept in outdoor enclosures, similar to their native habitats.

G Street is where you'll find art galleries. At the weekend-only Anchorage Market and Festival, you'll find everything from fur hats, native crafts and jewellery to local artwork, ivory carvings and food items. Head to 4th-6th Streets for souvenirs such as t-shirts, bear-claw salad tongs and ulu knives.

Anchorage, like Alaska, is known for seafood - halibut, salmon, crab and razor clams can be found on menus along with reindeer sausage.
Cruise Terminal
Cruise ships dock at the port of Anchorage, around a 5 minute drive from downtown Anchorage. As the port is mainly industrial, there are no facilities here. Some cruise lines offer a free shuttle bus into town and taxis are also available at the port.
