It’s a city of nearly 300,000 people, but also is home to thousands of moose, bears, sheep and even lynx.

Anchorage also is the jumping-off point for airplane and helicopter tours of the rugged interior of Alaska. Yet, there’s also an urban side to Anchorage. The city has a symphony orchestra and an opera company, something you don’t often find in a city this size. The Center for the Performing Arts attracts world-class talent. There’s also a ton of street art, museums, galleries and artist workspaces in a city that contains roughly 40% of the state’s population.
