To see the local wilderness set out to explore the Town Square Municipal Park.
If you are ready to grab a bargain, head to the boutiques, stores and stalls at the Fifth Avenue Mall and the Anchorage Market and Festival.
Nearby Mulcahy Stadium is a great place cheer along with fellow lovers of baseball, and to see local favorites, the Anchorage Glacier Pilots, in action. To look like a local, don’t forget to pack some royal blue and white, the colors of the Anchorage Glacier Pilots.
