Anchorage Bed and Breakfast Inns Point the Way to Fun
Anchorage Bed and breakfasts are located in a city enveloped within the innate beauty of the Alaskan wilderness, sandwiched between Cook Inlet and the foot of the Chugach mountain range. Anchorage bed and breakfast innkeepers share their city with bears, wolf packs, and moose. That is part of the reason why thousands visit Anchorage bed and breakfast inns each year and of course, the fact that all-year-round outdoor activities and other recreation is easily available, not to mention the fact that tourist venues including the many Anchorage bed and breakfast inns are well-maintained and very accommodating, manned by Ankorage citizens who are hospitable.
Some Anchorage Bed and Breakfast inns and Anchorage hotels are near Kincaid Park, one of the most popular trail systems here in Anchorage as well as the Far North Bicentennial Park and the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, all three of which provide some of the best miles of both paved and unpaved trails that are good for walking, running, even in-line skating, biking, and Nordic skiing.
For day hikers, try Flattop Mountain which you can reach via the parking lot in Glen Alps right in the Chugach State Park. For power bikers, skiers, and hikers, the Powerline Pass, a challenging unpaved trail can also be accessed via the Glen Alps parking lot. Powerline Pass is a grueling trail traversing from the Chugach Mountain down to Eagle River. The months of June and July bring in king and silver salmon on Ship Creek which is one of the more famous streams in the Chugach Mountains and this influx of salmons is the opening salvo to one of the most well-liked events in Anchorage – the Slam ‘n Salm’n Derby, a yearly contest to celebrate whoever hooks the largest and heaviest fish off the river.
Anchorage bed and breakfast innkeepers have plenty to brag about. You may have heard of the fun and exciting sled dog race, the carnivals, parade games, and fur trading and these activities occur for two fun-filled weeks during February and March and it is called the Fur Rendezvous or Rondy for short. Dogs and mushers from around the world converge here, specifically on Fourth Avenue for the traditional launch of the Last Great Race, the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race as it is called. It is a grueling race of a thousand miles where mushers have to face the harshest cold weather and some of the most rugged terrain in inhabited Alaska.
To enjoy all these attractions, you have to stay for more than a day at any of the Anchorage bed and breakfast inns. Anchorage bed and breakfast inns provide some of the most relaxing accommodations and good food in all of Alaska and the owners can even help you choose the best of the many interesting spots in the city.
