Explore the beauty of Alaska with a day trip outside of the city
Turnagain Arm of Cook Inlet is a scenic walkway that feeds into the Gulf of Alaska. You can either bike or hike down the few different trail options which include stunning views of the water and surrounding snow-capped mountains.

Chugach National Forest is the second largest forest in the USA, spanning over 6,000 acres in south central Alaska. It is one of the most accessible day trip options from Anchorage, with the nearest trailhead starting just 20 minutes from downtown Anchorage. There are dozens of trails and varying hikes to be explored throughout the forest depending on how far you feel like driving.
If you have the time and the desire to experience Alaska’s most iconic wonder, be sure not to miss out on the Kenai Fjords National Park.
