Mostly a location to pick up brochures. The staff weren't able to provide much in the way of recommendations, but they were friendly.

Helpful located behind the hospitality center in the middle of downtown. Has all kinds of info about the city of Anchorage and what is available, located in a great place, the grass growing on the roof is definitely attention getting.

Very knowledgeable people work there. Lots of brochures and interesting ideas to things to do. It was warm and cosy inside and the people were always ready to talk about their lives and tell interesting tales of their city.

The requisite stop at the Anchorage Visitor Center was informative and helpful. Helpful staff, which one would expect from a visitor center. They have a GREAT city map. About the best city map a tourist could every want.

2 ladies on the desk were very helpful and helped me plan my stay in anchorage. One of the ladies had a sled dog that got to pat and say hello to. A great first impression of anchorage with this information cabin. Make sure you pop in and say hello.

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.
