Neighbourhood

Access to the Costal Trail (11 miles of paved walking or biking trails in the summer and groomed for cross country skiing in the winter) stretching from downtown to Kincaid Park with our neighborhood being in the middle-ish, two parks/playgrounds within walking distance in the neighborhood. Well lit in the winter, lots of neighborhood walkers and bikers. Things to do in town include: TONS of wonderful and unique resturants and breweries, The Alaska Native Heritage Museum, The Anchorage Museum, Flight seeing from Lake Hood (bikeable from the house), plenty of regular “city” amenitites including movie theatres, book stores, grocery stores, local bakeries, local and chain resturants, shopping malls, salons, gyms, big box stores, etc. Great house to use as a "home base" for exploring more of Alaska. 45 minutes southeast of Anchorage you'll find Girdwood (https://girdwood.com/listings/things-to-do/). The winter offers skiing and snowboarding at the Aleyska resort and spa. Hiking trails and festivals are hosted here in the summer. Breweries, music events, and great restaurants happen all year long. While driving you'll pass beluga point and several other pull-offs for pictures and wildlife viewing (whales, eagles, dall sheep, and more). 2.5 hours south of Anchorage (1:45 beyond Girdwood) is Seward. You can arrive by car or train. On the way you have to opportunity to stop at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center (https://www.alaskawildlife.org/) and Portage Glacier viewing area where you can take a boat ride and see the glacier up close. If you want to see more glaciers you can venture through the longest tunnel (2.5 miles) in North America to Whittier. In Whittier you can take a full day glacier and wildlife cruise. Whittier is on the Prince William sound and offers kayaking, animal viewing, fishing in season, and even scuba diving. Once in Seward you can take glacier or wildlife tours in Resurrection Bay, take a water taxi to islands for remote camping, kayak, or visit the Seward Sea Life Center (https://www.alaskasealife.org/)

Getting around

Biking distance to grocery, post office. And walking/biking distance to a few restaurants and coffee shops. There is bus and uber/lyft access throughout the city as well. A rental car would be the easiest way to get around.

People Like Us Local Guide

Happy to lend camping gear, winter gear, bikes, etc if we have it available. We’d love to meet up for a meal or drink or a play date if you have kids. Or even just answer questions and give recommendations for things to do and see.
