“(By Alaska's Finest Tours & Cruises. $89) Board your Turnagain Arm shuttle for the guided drive along Alaska's most scenic highway. From beginning to end there are dramatic views of scenery & the Cook Inlet. At the 140 Acre Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, jaws drop in awe- even those of long time Alaskans. AWCC's mission is to provide refuge for orphaned, injured & ill animals- those that can't survive in the wild. Your shuttle will take you directly to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center where you can witness Alaskan Wildlife up close. We have timed this tour so that all customers will enjoy the bear feeding! Your journey to include a 1-hour visit to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center begins with a custom tour of Turnagain Arm and is a treat you won't want to miss. On the way to the Wildlife Center you will be traveling through the Chugach State Park down Alaska's most scenic highway. Highlights you will see in addition to wildlife: - Beluga Point - A popular photo stop for possible opportunities to see Dall Sheep & Beluga Whales passing through. It's luck of the draw. They will do their best to sync you up for a once in a lifetime rendezvous with these enchanted creatures of the land & sea. -Portage Glacier- You will see Explorer Glacier, Middle Glacier, Byron Glacier and take a walk through a Rainforest. Next grab a snack or a meal to enjoy on your ride back to Anchorage at Portage Day Lodge. -Potter Marsh- Is one of the most accessible & scenic wildlife viewing areas in Anchorage. About half way along the boardwalk, Rabbit Creek flows underneath and provides a good spot to see spawning Chinook, Coho or Humpback Salmon from May to August, depending on the species. Moose also frequent the marsh year round. -Alaska Wildberry Products- See the worlds largest chocolate waterfall! The store hires locals to pick "Alaska Berries" to make into the wonderful delights. You can also watch the workers make these delights through the glass wall. At the chocolate display case there is a tray of sample chocolates and if you did not sample the item you wanted to try just ask because they want to satisfy.”

“Great in town day hike with options for difficulty once you arrive there in the parking lot. Plus, beautiful city & inlet views. It's fun to drive here in the winter on cold nights and see the the Northern Lights. (Tip: The farther away from city lights, the better you can see them)”

Restaurant mit Cajun- / kreolischer Küche
“Located in Girdwood, AK. This is Cajun cooking, emphasizing steak & local seafood, in a roadhouse with Mardi Gras style decor. They Do Not take reservations so you will want to get there early. This is a first come first serve basis. Although, you can wait in their bar area and have a cocktail or two while you are waiting.”

“This bakery has two locations, both tucked away in neighborhoods. This is truly a local favorite that’s worth hunting down. The pastries are worth the stop. They also have limited gluten free options.”
