The Alaska zoo is in a wooded setting. It is very navigable and has a nice collection of animals. The zookeeper staff were enthusiastic and knowledgeable. It’s very close to the Glen Alps trail heads so a visit to the hiking trails and scenic view...More
If we had seen lots of wildlife in the “wild”, we probably would have skipped the zoo. But, we were yet to see any. So, at the zoo we saw bears – polar, brown, and black, wolverines, moose, wolves, doll sheep, mountain goats, and lots...More

According to Google maps Sunset Dr. is about 10.5 miles from the Zoo. The Zoo has a free shuttle bus that runs during the summer months from 4th Ave. to the Zoo. 4th Avenue is in the heart of downtown Anchorage and only 1.5 miles from Sunset Dr. If you are not visiting during the summer months a rental car or a taxi are your best options as the Zoo is not near a bus stop / rout. Thank you for your questions and let us know if we can be of further assistance.
