Top Rated Attractions in Anchorage

Search Radius (Miles)
Alaska Zoo

View 85 species of wildlife from the Arctic, including glacier bears, grizzly bears, and black bears, on this 25-acre wooded area. Other creatures that can be found here include caribou, moose, Dall sheep, wolves, musk oxen and many others. Some non-Alaskan species such as elephants, Bactrian camels and even a Siberian tiger are housed in the zoo as well. A gift shop and a refreshment stand are on the premises for anyone who needs a little pick-me-up.

Alaska Botanical Garden

This 110-acre (44.5 hectares) garden includes native perennials, an enclosed herb garden and an outdoor rock garden. Created in 1991 by volunteers, the garden has become an educational resource as well as a stunning showcase of Alaskan plants and wildflowers. Paths throughout allow for easy travel and a 1.2-mile hike provides views of the Chugach Mountains, a natural wetland and nearby Campbell Creek. One unusual feature is a still-used dog-mushing trail that travels through the garden. For the kids, ask to borrow a free Discovery Duffel from the garden store, packed with games and activities that tie in to the exhibits. Guided tours are available upon request.

Earthquake Park

When the "Good Friday" earthquake rocked Anchorage in March of 1964, the area that is now the park was an affluent residential area on the bluffs above Cook Inlet. The 9.2 earthquake dropped these homes into 30-foot crevasses and destroyed this entire area. Developed as a park years later, it carries monuments and reader boards with information on the great quake. The Tony Knowles Coastal Trail winds through the park.
