Visiting Anchorage

Anchorage, Alaska. The largest city in the state and gateway to the Interior. Stretching from the shores of Cook Inlet, Anchorage grew from a small tent community to 300,000 people in the 100 years since its founding. Its proximity to the Kenai Peninsula, Prince William Sound, and Chugach Mountains brings outdoor adventure within reach for residents and visitors alike.

Anchorage is home to Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, with strong ties to our military personnel and their families. With its Southcentral location, Anchorage serves as a major aviation hub, from small commuter flights to outlying communities to international cargo and passenger service.
