Wells Fargo Museum

The outstanding collection at the Wells Fargo Museum was created in 1968 by the National Bank of Alaska and is dedicated to providing insight into native Alaskan culture and Alaskan history. It is one of the largest privately owned public displays within Alaska. The exhibits include artifacts as much as 2,000 years old, paintings from the best-known names in Alaskan history, hand-crafted baskets from each of the state's native groups, a collection of 1895 rifles, a collection of ivory carvings and more than 2,800 rare books about Alaska and its natives. Admission is free.

Tony Knowles Coastal Trail

This coastal trail offers 11 miles (18 kilometers) of paved walking, skiing, biking and in-line skating heaven. It also provides unbelievable sunset views. Tony Knowles Coastal trail, built in honor of one of the city's former mayors and the former governor, is joined by many side trails that come from the midtown and south Anchorage districts. Along the way are mile and trail markers and, at Westchester Lagoon (one mile south of downtown), built-in fitness centers with pull-up bars, sit-up benches and general fitness information.

Kincaid Park

Kincaid Park is home to the city's largest moose population, but bipeds also enjoy the beauty of this former glacial area. With more than 1,400 acres (6.1 square kilometers), this wooded park has trails that wind throughout. Many interpretive sites and frequent postings allow for navigation through its beautiful, hilly expanse. You may access the park either from the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail or by Raspberry Road. There is a large interpretive visitor's center available and many wide open areas where festivals are held. These trails are home to local and national skiing competitions and have also hosted Olympic tryouts.

Chugach State Park

In 1970 this magnificent area was declared a state park. Located within the municipality of Anchorage, Chugach State Park includes roughly 500,000 acres (202,343 hectares) of the Chugach Range and the surrounding landscape. The Eklutna Lake is the park's most unique proposition that beautifully mirrors the surrounding environs over its glassy surface. With a 5,000 foot (1,524 meters) vertical rise and three major campgrounds to the north of Anchorage, this wilderness area is filled with wildlife including moose, wolves, brown and black bears and more. It's a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts offering a plethora of activities that allow one to get up, close and personal with nature.

Oscar Anderson House Museum

Part of the Anchorage walking tour, this house was built by the self-proclaimed "18th person" to walk into Anchorage, Oscar Anderson, in 915. Restored in 1982, it is open for guided tours Memorial Day to Labor Day. At the museum one gets a glimpse of the life style of the Andersons, and learns more about the early history of Anchorage. Exhibits discuss a roughly ten-year period from 1915 to 1925. The home is directly adjacent to the paved Tony Knowles Coastal Trail that follows the Inlet.

Bear Tooth Theater Pub

This combined eatery, movie theater and pub has seating both in the lobby, for the enjoyment of the full service kitchen, and in front of the movie screen. While dining on Moose's Tooth beer on tap and southwestern-style cuisine, patrons can relax and enjoy the movie. Balcony seating is limited to viewers under the age of 21. Dinner and drink service is discreetly provided throughout the films.
