Where the Last Frontier Collides with Modern City Life
Anchorage offers guests a multitude of options when it comes to accommodations. If you are looking to save money, we advise that you book a room in advance, the earlier you make your room reservations the better.
The Hotel Captain Cook
As a well known historical figure, Captain James Cook helped to map the jagged Alaskan coastline in the 1700s. A famed British explorer, Captain Cook is also well known for his “discovery” of the Hawaiian Islands. The hotel that shares his name, offers guests luxury accommodations with a seafaring flair.
The Voyager Inn
Located in the natural sub-arctic wilderness, Anchorage has quite a bit to offer in terms of attractions. Some attractions are purely an outdoorsy type of destination, while others offer history and culture.
Flattop Mountain is an absolute must for any Anchorage excursion. Located just outside the city, it is the most visited mountain in the state. Not the most experienced hiker? Fear not. The trails up to Flattop offer varied levels of difficulty, and the beginning trails even have a wheelchair accessible loop. The Flattop trailhead is about 3 miles long, and located just 20 minutes outside of Anchorage. Shuttles and other transportation are available if you’re not feeling the drive.
Alaska Native Heritage Center
Sometimes when people visit Alaska, they don’t know much about the traditions of the native people before it became a US state. The Alaska Native Heritage Center offers everyone a chance to learn about the native Alaskans’ history and culture, with hands-on art and practical craft demonstrations in an outdoor village environment, as well as life-sized replicas of traditional buildings. The center’s focus is to share the heritage of Alaska’s 11 major cultures.
