Anchorage, Alaska's largest city, is a curious mix of industry and culture. The boats in port and the warehouses built up along the Knik Arm waterfront reveal close ties to oil and industry. However, this actually contributes to the Anchorage aura, both businesslike and beautiful. Numerous hikes, vistas and haunts can be found within an hour's flight or drive of the city.
Fairbanks has more to offer the visitor than the Fred Meyer farthest north. The old downtown is pleasant and easily explored on foot. Home to the University of Alaska, the associated museum has an extensive display of artifacts that explore Alaska's history, and Fairbanks offers a number of other manmade and natural attractions as well.
Talkeetna is the staging point for expeditions bound for Mt. McKinley. On clear days, around this small town there are plenty of places to catch a glimpse of the Alaska Range and 'the big mountain.' When the weather is good, small planes take off with astonishing regularity winging over Denali National Park and back for flightseeing in summer and shuttling climbers to the McKinley's base late spring.
