Hire a car in Anchorage
Capital of America’s Last Frontier, Anchorage is a dramatic and beautiful entry point to Alaska.
Pressed between the Chugach Mountains and a salmon filled saltwater inlet, the sprawling city is fundamentally linked to the surrounding nature. Although Anchorage is the state’s most developed city, it’s still unlikely to wow you. But its wild attractions most certainly will.
The city has every mark of a model road trip base. It’s a close to vast, untamed nature and the drives in themselves are a stunning adventure. Whether you’re heading out on a day drive or a week long journey, prepare for jaw-dropping splendour of Alaska’s landscapes.
Sights to see
Anchorage is Alaska's vibrant commercial centre and its largest city. Situated toward the top of the Cook Inlet, it is a beautiful clash of mountainous terrain, frosty glaciers, picturesque national parks, and cosmopolitan bars and cafés. Rent a car with easyCar, the online car rental specialist, and get the most out of your time in ‘Anchortown' by cutting journey times by up to a quarter.
Things to do:
Firstly, Anchorage's cultural offerings are plentiful. In downtown Anchorage, the 16,000 square-meter Anchorage Museum is dedicated to promoting the land, art, culture and history of Alaska and Alaskan. s through a mixture of permanent and visiting exhibitions. On the other side of the museum, the Imaginarium Discovery Center provides a whole host of interactive science exhibits that will keep the little ones entertained. A 15-minute drive east, the Alaska Native Heritage Center celebrates the cultural pedigree of the 11 indigenous Alaskan groups via traditional arts, crafts and dance.
Arguably, Anchorage is the city of outdoor pursuits in the pacific northwest. Occupying 25 hectares towards the south of the city, Alaska Zoo currently houses over 50 different species of mostly native bird and mammal. The other side of the Far North Bicentennial Park, Alaska Botanical Garden houses over 1,500 species of flora, at least 150 of which are native to Alaska, in a wonderfully maintained 110-acre estate. For an adrenaline-fuelled getaway, Alyeska Resort, Alaska's largest ski resort, is a 50-minute drive from downtown Anchorage.
Driving a car allows you to discover the spectacular landscape Anchorage finds itself surrounded by. For a scenic drive that you'd be hard-pressed to forget, cruise through the Portage Valley for access to the Portage Glacier. Continue to the town of Whittier for an abundance of hiking, quad-biking, kayaking, sailing and fishing opportunities.
A two-and-a-half-hour's drive through Chugach National Forest, lies Seward. Whilst there, traverse Kenai Fjords National Park, one of Alaska's most prolific wildernesses. Bear witness to some of the most beautiful fjords and glaciers, including ever-accessible Exit Glacier, which humpback whales, sea-otters, sea-lions and harbour seals amongst others call their home. Explore Resurrection Bay and trek to Caine's Head for an unforgettable experience. Other attractions include Alaska SeaLife Center, Alaska's foremost aquarium.
