02Visit the Wildlife

Close encounters with wildlife are another part of what makes Anchorage a great place to visit. Travelers can see bears in Katmai or Lake Clare National Parks, whales off the coast and moose practically everywhere. For people who prefer a fence between themselves and the animals, Alaska Zoo and the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center allow visitors to see the area's wildlife and learn about them at the same time.
