Anchorage // 1 City 5 Ways (Bonus stops!)
By Eric Lucas, Delta Sky Contributing Writer
Each month, Sky magazine highlights five ways to discover a destination. Here are a few more Anchorage hot spots to check out, exclusively for Taking Off.
For the Outdoor Enthusiast // Anchorage Golf Course
Few golf courses rival its views (Denali in the distance!) and course hazards (made by glaciers and permafrost instead of bulldozers). anchoragegolfcourse.com
For the Foodie // Simon & Seafort’s
One of the best surf and turf joints in town also boasts amazing views of Cook Inlet and the Alaska Range. simonandseaforts.com
For the History Buff // Begich, Boggs Visitor Center
Learn about human and geologic history at the Begich, Boggs Visitor Center, located 55 miles south of Anchorage. Native peoples, trappers and traders once traveled through this area to and from Prince William Sound. fs.usda.gov/chugach
For the Indigenous Art Fan // Dena’ina Center
You’d never guess it from the outside, but this gleaming glass convention center houses amazing artwork inspired by Alaska’s Dena’ina Athabascan native people. Don’t miss the glass mural on the south wall, which depicts native life as it once was. anchorageconventioncenters.com/denaina-center
For Families // Potter Marsh
Head to the south side of town for a stroll on the boardwalk at this wetland preserve. Watch for migratory waterfowl, eagles, northern harriers and the migrating salmon that return here in late summer. adfg.alaska.gov
