Anchorage: Best Eateries and Parks

Travel in Alaska, in our opinion, should ALWAYS include the Interior. The scenery is breathtaking and the grandeur almost impossible to comprehend. Should you find yourself passing through Anchorage during your trip, we’d offer these as our top picks for places to eat and relax.



Breakfast: Snow City Cafe downtown. We love the food, the vibe, the fun of this local Anchorage breakfast/brunch/lunch hangout. And French toast to die for . . .

Sandwiches: Middle Way Cafe. Another great local, fresh and fun place to gather with friends. Vegetarian and health-conscious friendly.

Pizza: Moose’s Tooth Pub and Pizzeria. Local pizza legend was made here, with pies that are simply the best. No really, the best. One of the top rated pizzeria’s in the country!

Fast Food: The Arctic Roadrunner Local Burgerman. Another legend in Anchorage, this one since way back in ’64. Burgers, fries, the works . . .

Dinner: Glacier Brewhouse. A very favorite of ours – super popular, delicious Alaska dining!




Hiking: Flattop Mountain. This is the most climbed peak in Alaska. An overlook at the trailhead offers a great view of Anchorage and the surrounding scenery.

Open Spaces/Fields: Kincaid Park. Located in west Anchorage, this park is a great place to take a picnic and ball or frisbee. Enjoy the incredible views: Denali, the Alaska Range, Cook Inlet, Fire Island and jets landing at the airport.

Most Interesting View: Point Woronzof Park. Great place to watch the sunset, view wildlife, and have a 747 take off just above your head!

Enjoy Anchorage!
