Fall Fun In Anchorage September 14, 2016 Ted Palmer Share It’s easy to know that fall has arrived in Alaska as temperatures cool off, migrations begin, and the landscape’s colors become more vibrant and breathtaking. But don’t let the turning seasons prevent you from venturing north – there is still so much to see and do here! RV Camping RV camping in Alaska doesn’t end just because school is back in session. Many of the campgrounds operate well into the fall season, but make sure you call ahead and book a site before you head out on the road in your motorhome rental. Nearby Hiking Trails Drive yourself to Chugach State Park, just a 20-minute drive from downtown Anchorage. The Glen Alps Trailhead is a great starting point, and the trail system within the park will give you access to mountains, valleys, forests, and lakes. Northern Lights While the best time of year to spot the aurora borealis is actually winter, they do often make an appearance in the fall. Of course, the further north you go, the better your chances are of seeing them, but there are some tour operators in Anchorage who take visitors out to some of the best viewing spots when the conditions are right. Cultural Activities The Anchorage Museum includes a hands-on science discovery center, planetarium, Alaska Native art, and incredible variety of exhibits showcasing life in the north. You might also want to look at the events calendar on the Visit Anchorage Alaska website for current events going on during your stay.
