Anchorage lies in Southcentral Alaska, between the Chugach Mountains and Cook Inlet. It is Alaska’s largest city with 41 percent of the state’s population.
While Anchorage boasts big-city amenities such as fine restaurants, museums, shops, theaters, and an excellent music scene, it is surrounded by rugged mountains and wilderness.
A diverse wildlife population exists within urban Anchorage and the surrounding area. Black bears and grizzly bears live in the area and are regularly sighted within the city. Moose are a common sight. Thinhorn sheep, lynxes, and northern timber wolves also reside in the Anchorage area. Beaver dams can be spotted in local creeks and lakes, and sightings of foxes and kits near wooded areas are common.
On the first Saturday of each March, the nation focuses on downtown Anchorage, where the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race kicks off.
