HOW TO MAKE A VIRTUAL VISIT TO ANCHORAGE

As travel plans are temporarily paused, consider a virtual visit to Anchorage: Here are a few livestreamed or interactive looks at some of Anchorage’s most iconic angles and institutions.

Ship Creek: A few blocks north of Fourth Avenue, Ship Creek is Anchorage’s favorite urban fishing site. In the summer, anglers pull in massive king salmon just steps from downtown. In the winter, viewers can watch sheets of Cook Inlet ice crack and break along the creek bed.

Anchorage Museum: Elements of the Anchorage Museum are viewable online. Start here, with these collections from “ILATKA: The Inuit Word For My Relatives.”

Lake Hood: The busiest seaplane base in the country, Lake Hood is home to hundreds of aircraft and — when the weather is right — picture-perfect views of the Alaska Range and other surrounding mountains. Tune it to watch for planes, mountains, and the occasional northern lights or moose spotting.

The Alaska Zoo: The Alaska Zoo’s polar bear webcam offers a live look at one of its most beloved residents — even when the zoo itself is closed to the public. Watch Cranberry frolic with ravens, stroll her enclosure, nap, and play.

AN ALASKA READING LIST
Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are. Whether planning a future visit to Anchorage, reliving past Alaska travels, or just looking for a diversion, click here for a few titles of the north fill to fill shelf and screen from old school, to Native culture and of course something for the kids.

A VIRTUAL CONCERT OR LIVESTREAM
Tune in to a virtual concert or live-streamed storytime: Group gatherings may be postponed for now, but you can still enjoy original Alaska tunes and stories online via your favorite streaming and download platforms. Some groups — like Anchorage based Medium Build — have live-streamed concerts. Both the Alaska Native Heritage Center and the Anchorage Public Library also offer virtual live storytelling and storytime events.

PLAN FOR A FUTURE TRIP
Plan for a future trip: Research railroad trips and glacier cruises, take a virtual tour or browse a photo gallery, and plan the perfect future adventure with the help of our Visitors Guide, local blog, and other online resources. Present plans might be postponed, but don’t let that derail your future travel dreams — explore Anchorage.net and start building your bucket list.

Visit Anchorage’s mission is to attract and serve visitors to the Municipality of Anchorage. With more than 135 miles of paved trails, the nation’s third largest state park, first-class amenities and a blend of cultures found only in Alaska, Anchorage lives a Big Wild Life.
