Six Robblees is not far from Ship Creek RV Park if you arrive in Anchorage in need of parts or service for your RV after your journey to Alaska. This is the largest RV parts dealer in Alaska and are sure to have anything you need.
No doubt you will also be looking for a heavy-duty RV wash that accommodates large RVs. Well look no further than Mountain View Car Wash to get your rig clean. They provide large bays for any size RV, vacuums, and a dump station. They are open 24 hours a day and even have wash cards available for purchase that offer a discount.
There are plenty of amazing options for things to do in Anchorage. Both the Anchorage Museum and the Well’s Fargo Museum are worth visiting. The Anchorage Museum is the largest in the state and has incredible exhibits from around the state. The Well’s Fargo Museum is in the Well’s Fargo Bank at C St. but that doesn’t mean it’s lacking in authenticity. It has a wonderful display of early Alaskan artifacts.
The Anchorage Trolley is the best way to get to know the city. Take this fun trolley tour and hop on or off around the city and all the main attractions. Every rider on the Trolley will receive a coupon book for local attractions making this tour an excellent value.
Portage Glacier is only an hour south of Anchorage and is well worth taking a Gray Line cruise on the mv Ptarmigan, that will get you to within 100 yards of Portage Glacier. What better way to spend an afternoon than relaxing aboard the mv Ptarmigan and viewing the glacier! They depart 5 times a day in the summer. When done at the glacier, take the 5 mile drive to the town of Whittier and drive through the longest train/vehicle combination tunnel in North America at 2.5 miles long.
When visiting, you will never be short of amazing things to do in Anchorage Alaska.
