Anchorage Alaska

When someone mentions “Anchorage”, what thoughts go through your mind? Cold? Dark? Depressing? Igloos? Eskimos? Dog sleds? We just spent a week there, as we had some appointments that we needed to take care of. This was not our first time there, We have visited Alaska’s largest city many times over the past 19 years. For the most part, Anchorage is like many cities in the lower 48 states. It has fast food, it has some crime, it has some places that aren’t the best to travel after dark or alone. But it has so much more. Yes it receives snow some during the winters. In fact it snowed off and on for two days while we were there. They do not have 6 months of darkness, in fact there is no where in Alaska, that is true. Yes they have extended daylight in spring and summer, and decreased sunlight during  the fall and winter. They have beautiful sunsets, if you know where to look. This was before sunset

Anchorage has a lot to offer, during any season of the year. It is the hub of Alaska and many flights start or end there. It’s the city that is most visited when someone talks of Alaska. It is not Alaska’s capital, Juneau is, which is in the SE part of the state. If your travels give you the chance to spend time or visit Anchorage, take it, it’s a place on many people’s bucket lists.

Like to travel?

Have you ever stopped at a gas station and ask “if they knew a good place near by to eat?”. Have you ever been to a city and had time but nothing to do? We just spent a week in Anchorage Alaska, we had a few appointments that we needed to take care of. While there we stayed in a hotel, ate our meals out everyday. This is my plug for “trip advisor”. We have contributed info on places we stayed, visited, liked and didn’t like. You know what, many people have read our reviews and some said they helped. So I just finished some of the reviews this last week. To see what we thought of Anchorage or where we went, please conduct a search on “trip advisor” for scspeights. You’ll see some recents and some older reviews. Reviews from Washington DC, Washington, Colorado And California. My point is, people enjoy going places other have enjoyed. People like to eat at places that provide good service and food. So if you have never been a critic, take a trip then leave a review. Or you can start out by critiquing places in your hometown or neighborhood.
