Take a Trip Up North to Anchorage
When you travel to Anchorage, you'll find yourself in a different world. There are regular sightings of bald eagles, moose and bears even within city limits. Having a car rental gives you flexibility in terms of when and where you travel. Traffic is minimal, and having a car means you'll be able to explore the more remote attractions as well as city sights.
See the Animals
There's a good chance you'll see something wild from the road, but if you want a better look, head over to the Alaska Zoo. It's about 10 miles away from downtown Anchorage, and it's home to native and exotic animals. You can even book a special encounter where you get to go behind the scenes.
Further south is the Alaska Wildlife Conversation Center. At this 200-acre reserve, orphaned and injured animals are cared for. You can see animals like bison, bears, deer, reindeer, foxes and caribou. It's just under an hour's drive from town with your car rental.
Climb up the Mountains
From land, the mountains of Alaska are awe-inspiring. When you're up in the mountains, you get an expansive view of the terrain. While you could hike at places like Byron Glacier Trail or Thunderbird Falls, you can also take a chairlift or tram at the Alyeska Resort. The tram runs year-round and climbs 2,300 feet in seven minutes. The ski season at Alyeska generally lasts from November to April.
The resort is about 40 miles from the city and 15 miles from the wildlife conservation center. It has its own dining and lodging options.
