Folks looking to compare one of America s oldest cities with one of its newest can fly from Boston to Anchorage in about 10 hours. Public transportation to Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) is a breeze with Blue Line subway service, MBTA Commuter Boat service or free service on the Silver Line bus. One of the most populous cities in Alaska, Anchorage is teeming with wildlife and natural beauty.
More than a dozen rare creatures are regularly seen within or just outside the city limits of Anchorage, including grizzly bears, foxes, mountain goats, lynxes, beluga whales and moose. For an unsurpassed hiking adventure, visit Chugach State Park, which borders the city and is one of the largest state parks in the country. Fishing enthusiasts can score a trophy catch in Prince William Sound, an hour's drive from the city, where halibut are common. Walk to Ship Creek downtown where folks on their lunch hours catch prize salmon. The Alyeska Resort an hour east of town is considered one of the top alpine ski destinations in the world. Head to Matanuska Valley, where the mushers live, for a dog sled tour.
Rental cars and taxis are available at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC), and the Municipality of Anchorage People Mover Bus provides service to downtown from the airport as well. Bring plenty of layers in the winter since lows can drop to 5 degrees Fahrenheit. Summers are moderate but still cool with highs in the mid-60s.
