  • My favorite park in Anchorage. Fantastic frolf course-open year round. Great ski trails in winter, biking and running trails in summer. Good place to show tourists some moose in the summer.
  • Great place to see moose, birds, bears and porcupines. Great singletrack and ski trails. Beach access. Occasional dead whale pops on shore. Chalet is a great space for gatherings. Beer Can lake is technically on airport land but it's functionally part of the park.
  • Kincaid has nice trails but you can't go anywhere without a bunch of big hills unless you stick to the Costal Trail. There are many beautiful views of the inlet.
  • This is such a great park .located in the fancy south/west region of anchorage , there are many things to do all year round 👍. Cross country Sking , sledding , hiking , bird watching , dog walking and just plane old wrooting around in the winter .hiking and disk golf in the spring, all summer and in the fall too . The Chalet is really great too!!! You can rent it for any number of things or ideas , party's , book signings, festivals , baby showers , wedding receptions , wine tastings or any kind of events you can dream of .

  • If you have had a stressful week this is a great spot to go hiking and relax while enjoying the scenery. Cold War Era history site. Old bunkers from when there was one of the 3 NIKE missile sites. Soccer fields for games. World class level cross country skiing trails can be hikes during the summer months if you feel the need to really work your legs and up your cardiovascular workout.

Where to stay in Anchorage

Anchorage hotels increase room rates during the height of the tourist season, but you can visit the area economically any time of year by choosing a budget-friendly bed and breakfast or small inn. The city's downtown area contains the priciest rooms; most are offered by chain hotels. You can find less expensive rooms at a cluster of hotels located in Midtown, a largely commercial neighborhood with a good selection of restaurants and shops.
