You’ll also enjoy an interactive science discovery center featuring marine life tanks, a planetarium and more.
Dena'ina Convention Center
The newest Anchorage convention center, the Dena'ina Center in downtown Anchorage is a modern marvel. At nearly 200,000 square feet of state-of-the-art exhibition space, it's the largest convention center in Alaska and a superb choice for almost any occasion. At the heart of the center sits Idlughet Exhibit Hall which features theatre seating for up to 5,000 as well as drive-in/out access and four loading docks. Like the Egan Convention Center, Dena'ina Center showcases local artwork for guests to admire between sessions.
5th Avenue Mall
What could be better than five levels of upscale tax-free shopping? Sure, you’ll find national name brands like JC Penney, Nordstrom, Apple and Michael Kors. But you can also browse local fashion boutiques and shops like Alaska Wild Berry Products, Once in a Blue Moose and the Iditarod Store. Be sure to drop by the award-winning Sullivan’s Steakhouse, which is locally beloved for its 1940s Chicago-style ambiance, live jazz and the best steaks in Alaska.
Tony Knowles Coastal Trail
Gently winding along the Anchorage coast from downtown to the chalet at Kincaid Park, this 11-mile trail is not just one of the most beautiful coastal landscapes in Alaska, it’s one of the most beautiful in the world. A walk, hike, jog or bike ride takes you past the fault line of the 1964 earthquake, through pine scented forests and points with sweeping vistas where you can spot beluga whales and the peaks of Mt. Denali.
