Tucked into the Cook Inlet of Alaska is Anchorage. Since Anchorage is the main shipping hub of Alaska, this is where our Anchorage auto transport affiliate is located.
Anchorage’s weather is mainly dictated by maritime influences giving it a fairly moderate climate. In fact, most of their precipitation happens in the late summertime. Don’t forget about it’s shorter days and longer nights thanks to the latitude of this Alaskan city.
The real reason to visit Alaska is for the wildlife and landscape. Bears, moose, and foxes aren’t shy in this part of the US. There have even been some mountain goats spotted along the Seward Highway near Anchorage. For those who love sea life, the beluga whales can be seen in the Turnagain Arm, and there are numerous salmon runs in the nearby streams. Anchorage is a coastal city, but its backdrop is the Chugach Mountains.
Anchorage is considered the halfway point when traveling across the globe to places like New York City, Tokyo, and Berlin. It’s only 9 ½ hours by air to nearly 90% of the industrialized world. This makes Anchorage International Airport a natural refueling stop for many international flights. Anchorage grew out of its railroad past and continued to grow with the help of air transportation and importance of military presence. The Elmendorf Air Force Base and Fort Richardson, built in the 1940s, combined in 2005 to become Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.
Besides being the ceremonial start of the famous Iditarod Sled Dog Race, Anchorage has three baseball teams: Anchorage Bucs, Anchorage Glacier Pilots, and Chugiak-Eagle River Chinooks. It is considered a premier cross-country skiing city thanks to the density of groomed trails within the urban areas.
Anchorage is home to four high education facilities – the University of Alaska Anchorage, Alaska Pacific University, Charter College, and the Anchorage campus of Wayland Baptist University, plus a small center from the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
