3 Sightseeing Opportunities Near Anchorage

1. Experience Anchorage Via Train

Anchorage is a hot spot for railroad travel in Alaska. In fact, this city is the original home of the first railway in the “Land of the Midnight Sun.” In the summer, daily trips are available to several cities across Alaska including Seward, Prince William Sound, and Denali where you can take in the breathtaking views while riding the rails. If you’re looking for other transportation-related excursions, check out one of Alaska’s bike paths, the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, or consider scheduling a flightseeing tour for an amazing view of mountains, glaciers, and wildlife.

2. Visit Chugach State Park

If you’d like to tour the 49th State from the comfort of your motorhome rental, you must add Chugach State Park to your itinerary. As one of the largest state parks in the U.S., this wide expanse is home to the Chugach Mountain Range. There are several opportunities for hiking, rafting, sightseeing, or simply strolling through the vast wilderness. Other nearby national parks include Kenai Fjords National Park, Denali National Park, and Katmai National Park.

3. Enjoy the Wildlife

If you’re hoping to see some wildlife near Anchorage, odds are pretty good that you’ll spot either a black, brown, or polar bear while driving in your rental motorhome. Some of the best locales to find these furry yet dangerous animals include Katmai or Lake Clark National Park and typically near the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center.
