Anchorage

City On The Last Frontier

Most cities can’t boast that they are surrounded by some of the most exciting and pristine wilderness on Planet Earth.

But downtown Anchorage is a metropolitan gem lying at the base of the Chugach Mountains in south-central Alaska. The city traces its origins to Russian Orthodox missionaries who established a mission in 1835, with the city’s official founding in 1914. 

Anchorage is Alaska’s largest city, with a metropolitan area population of about 320,000 Alaskans living in or near the city. 

While Anchorage is known for the beauty that surrounds it, there are plenty of things to do in downtown Anchorage. It’s home to the University of Alaska, the Museum of History and Art, and the Alaska Heritage Library and Museum, which is known for its large collection of native artifacts and art, and the Alaska Zoo.

Downtown Anchorage also features a bevy of restaurants, nightlife, and fine hotels. If camping Anchorage is your preference, or if you’re looking for RV parks in Anchorage there are several grounds in and nearby Anchorage
