The four most popular things that guests experience in our area are the proximity to the Chugach State Park with Flat Top Mountain and the Glen Alps with the best hiking trails and spectacular views of Alaska. Second, a visit to downtown Anchorage visiting shops, museums and visitor events. Third, a very rewarding day trip to Girdwood, the Portage Glacier and the Wildlife Center. Fourth, a day trip to experience either the 26 Glacier Cruise out of Whittier or a boat trip into the Kenai Fjords out of Seward.
