Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city, is in the south-central part of the state on the Cook Inlet. It's known for its cultural sites, including the Alaska Native Heritage Center, which displays traditional crafts, stages dances, and presents replicas of dwellings from the area’s indigenous groups. The city is also a gateway to nearby wilderness areas and mountains including the Chugach, Kenai and Talkeetna.
Anchorage is best known for trails, wildlife, and glaciers, and it is the state's cultural soul as well. The city is home to more artists and musicians than any other place in Alaska.
