When oil was discovered in the Arctic region in the 1960s, Anchorage grew further, merging with other towns in the area to become the modern city it is today. It offers convenience alongside a visitor experience packed with full-on adventure.
More than 60 glaciers lie within 50 miles of the downtown core, which is surrounded by six mountain ranges. With one of the largest state parks in Alaska right on Anchorage's doorstep, it's a dream destination for hiking, dog sledding, food, entertainment, water sports and sightseeing in all directions.
With so much to see and do in Anchorage and its surrounding areas, it makes sense to rent an RV and experience it at your own pace.
