Top 3 Things to do in Anchorage, Alaska with Kids

Beautiful Anchorage

Beautiful Anchorage

I recently wrote an article for Hilton Mom Voyage, which is a great resource for travel tips and reviews especially pertaining to family travel, about Anchorage, Alaska. I found Anchorage is usually a stepping stone for people going on cruises and fishing excursions and little time is left to explore this beautiful city surrounded by water and mountains with views as far as the eye can see. I admit, my family was guilty of not making enough time for this majestic city, but we managed to squeeze two nights into our itinerary and boy am I sure glad we did! During our short visit we dined on Reindeer, found amazing brewery’s featuring local craft beer, went on a 22-mileĀ long bike ride and even watched float planes take off and land during ourĀ Anchorage Trolley tour! I certainly wish we spent at least another day but we definitely will when we return! There is so much fascinating detail within this city that leaving at least a couple days to explore is in every visitors best interest!

Here is the link to my recently published review on Hilton Mom Voyage. Enjoy and make sure you spend some quality time in Anchorage on your visit to Alaska! Oh – and next time you are in Anchorage, I highly recommend a stay at Hilton Anchorage! I would love to hear about your Anchorage visit and how you maximized your time exploring and getting to know this vibrant city. We will be heading there again this summer after we take an Inland Passage cruise. I can’t wait to share details!

Riding on the Anchorage Trolley is a wonderful way to get a layout of the city and learn its history.
