After breakfast together, it’s time to learn about all things of Alaska. First off, visit Earthquake Park and Point Woronzof, where you can take in the stunning views of Anchorage’s skyline, the Chugach Mountains, and Cook Inlet. Continue in your private vehicle to historic Ship Creek – an area where Anchorage was the first settlement in 1911 as a tent city. Nearby, find a salmon stream where keen anglers often catch some fish on their lunch breaks. You will also see the Anchorage Rail Terminal, home to the historic Alaska Railroad.
This afternoon, visit the Alaska Native Heritage Center – for an interactive range of exhibitions, educating travelers about the traditional owners and First Nations peoples of this territory and beyond. Walk through six life-sized village sites dotted around the grounds – representing Alaskan territories such as the Athabascan, Inupiaq, and Yup’ik/Cup’ik communities – and perhaps head into the Hall of Cultures, which displays works from Alaska Native artists.
Join the kids to be entertained with some craft activities on offer! Once you’ve completed your visit, join your leader as they take you back to your accommodation. Tonight is free for your family to explore and eat at your leisure, perhaps taking a stroll downtown.
