Interesting
Sprawled over the one piece of flat ground between Cook Inlet and the sharp peaks of the Chugach range, Alaska's largest city holds nearly half the state's population. As the state's center of commerce and culture, the city welcomes both business travelers and tourists. Once a tent city of pioneers and rail workers, Anchorage grew into a pioneer city in the first part of the 20C. In addition to being a thriving city, Anchorage is also the gateway to Alaska's terrific recreation opportunities.
