Nearby opportunities for outdoor adventure include skiing, skating, hiking, kayaking, berry picking, fishing, and camping. We are also fortunate to have many cultural events in Anchorage throughout the year, as well as national museum exhibits, theatrical performances, opera, dance, and folk music festivals.
