We were headed to this location for a city tram tour and there was a guy on the street who nabs you to "confirm your seat on the tram." We were there on a Friday, rainy day. Tram was 3/4 full, tour was merely a trip around town. Tour guide was a retired teacher whose husband grew up in Anchorage... More

Great advice for restaurants and attractions in Anchorage, as well as Talkeetna! It's clear that staff enjoy their jobs which is always encouraging. Appreciate their advice and insights. They definitely helped shape our trip. Great insights - thank you! Definitely recommend a visit.

This is Answer Center for Anchorage and the pick up point for a variety of shuttle and tour buses. Very friendly staff and large wall maps of Alaska help you get oriented in this huge state. Nice comfortable chairs and a real fireplace make it a cozy place to plan your visit. Like most Visitor Centers, this one has information... More

I was staying outside Downtown and needed to telephone a shuttle to get back to the hotel each day, however I didn't have a phone with me. The staff at the Visitors' Center were always happy to telephone for me. They also could help sort all those little problems that occur when travelling as well as making sensible suggestions about...

This has to be the prettiest visitor center we have ever visited and probably the 1st one we've ever taken a picture(s) of. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. We also took a city tour from a trolley that picks up/drops off at the visitor center.

Much information to any and all that Alaska has to offer. I guess that you would have to know what you are interested in seeing and how cost effective that tour or tours would be. They have many people going into that log cabin so it is very busy and you might not get the attention that you would like... More

Everything that there is to do, in Anchorage, there is a pamphlet located in this little building. If you ask the people working there, they will tell you all the places that the "locals" like! Very friendly!
