Home to over half of Alaska’s population, Southcentral is a playground of activities from world-class fishing to hiking and wildlife viewing. With mountains and lakes, Southcentral offers the advantages of remote wilderness, but is linked via roads. World-class rainbow trout and salmon shimmer brilliantly, beckoning to prospective anglers. Southcentral has the amenities travelers seek, while serving as a gateway to the wilderness experience.
Alaska’s largest city, Anchorage (population 260,283), is a popular visitor destination and center of commerce for the region. Luxury hotels, fine cuisine and shopping are only minutes from state parks, an extensive paved bike path system and many historical sites. The view of the Chugach Mountains, Southcentral Alaska’s primary mountain range, greets visitors to Anchorage.
