After checking into our motel, this was the 1st place that we stopped at; even before we picked up our rental car. If you are in Anchorage on your own & making your own plans, all the information you need can be found right here plus the staff is very helpful. It's located in kind of a tourist trap area... More

The visitor center is in a great location downtown near lots of places to eat before or after your visit. The staff was very helpful and gave plenty of advice on what to do in and around Anchorage. Highly recommended that you stop by if you need hiking trails or other adventures.

Cute building sitting on edge of park. Vendors sell food in same block. Nice atmosphere. Got some needed info from helpful staff and enjoyed the area, stores, and just browsing.

If you have a couple of hours to kill in Anchorage and not sure what to do, walk by and the staff there will recommend something really cool to do in the time you have and the interests you have.

We have stopped by several times, even though we live in the area, just to get advice for visitors and ourselves. We loved the snappy white haired lady with a Texas accent. She is a hoot and very knowledable.
