Look for Beluga Point. You can easily pull off the highway and hike on the rock/beach area. My kids had such fun we went back a second day for several hours. Beautiful to see and you don't have to worry about bears.

Years ago the city of Anchorage offered a tour of the port. So glad I went. The port is a secure location since 2011. Prior to that one could easily drive to the port. Now one would get arrested for trying. However, one can get...More
