After finishing up a great cruise-land package with Princess cruises we decided to spend a couple of days in Anchorage sightseeing before we heading back to the lower 48 states and home. One of the tours we recommend is the Anchorage City Trolley Tours. It was not very expensive, and if you get the tour guide we had, a retired Anchorage school teacher, who married a native Alaskan and had many wonderful stories to tell, you'll be very entertained.
One such story was about her husband who as a young boy was undergoing his first bit of Novocaine in the dentist's chair during the Good Friday earthquake of 1964 (March 27th). Imagine being drugged up and feeling the whole world shake and collapse around you. She also told of personal encounters her family had with the wildlife such as bears and moose living in Anchorage.
The trip goes for around 45 minutes and there is always the chance you might get to see some of that Alaskan wildlife moseying along during the trip. Great way to get introduced to Anchorage so try to do the tour early on your first day of exploring.
