Anchorage things to do

We are 2 adults who will have one full free day in Anchorage the day before we depart on the Alaska Railroad package to Kenai and Denali. We will also have 1/2 day in Anchorage at end of our RR package in Anchorage before we depart for airport home. We are looking for suggestions of activities in Anchorage. We like to walk, do easy hikes, enjoy gardens and nature. We will not have a car. Any help for things to do is appreciated.

1. Re: Anchorage things to do

Would you be willing to rent a car for your full day? Lots to do if you get out of town and have a full day. On the 1/2 day you could visit a Museum or The Alaska Native Heritage Center or rent bikes and ride the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail. Checkm ou this link for some ideas so you can narrow down what you might be interested in.

Does it have to be within Anchorage? For the full day, consider a day trip to scenic Matanuska Glacier for the easy guided hike on the glacier. Much less costly if you rent your own vehicle, but can be done with Salmon Berry Tours.

Another option would be a day train trip to either Whittier for an afternoon glacier cruise, or to Spencer Glacier for a variety of options. Here is one that might be of interest: https:/…bears-trains-icebergs . More info: https:/…day-trips

Or depending on the time of year, a half day or full day bear-viewing tour with Rust's.

For the half day, the Botannical Gardens: alaskabg.org/visitexplore/…
