Staffed by volunteers in the know, this is the place to start, especially if your time is limited since they can help you plan a good itinerary. Tons of literature, and ideas you may not have though of yourself when planning your trip. I went in with a few questions and left with a whole new plan for the weekend.

Let them plan your day or your entire trip. Some of the nicest people you'll ever meet and they truly want to help you enjoy your visit and make the best use of your time. Worth the stop.

They are very helpful here. But most of the literature can be had anywhere. They are a little hesitant about recommending places, but in a pinch, good information.

This is just a cute tiny log cabin in the middle of downtown, but they have lots to offer about tours and the like. You can catch a red trolly at the log cabin and for $20.00 they take you all around town for an hour. You see the sights, the airports, learn about the big earthquake....it's really very fun...

Excellent staffing with many resources on how to make the most of your Alaska visit. Great please, but small, to warm up in the winter.

These two buildings have plenty of information, and is staffed by volunteers who know how to match your interests with the right places to go. Most places are within walking distance, but there are some shuttle buses to take you to Sourdough Mining and other attractions.

I went to the visit center for direction and information around Anchorage and I got much more than I expected. The staff/volunteers are very friendly and knowledgeable. Obviously they are local residents and know a lot about the nature around. Besides, they will give you a lot of tips when you go different places.
