88.8 miles: 1 hours, 33 minutes
Nestled in the mountains and surrounded by water on two sides, Anchorage offers a convenient gateway to scenic Alaska. Experience history and culture in “The City of Lights and Flowers,” or venture down SR 1, along marshy Turnagain Arm inlet, to fish, ski or hike in the wilderness.

Cook Inlet and the surrounding mountains provide the perfect backdrop to Anchorage, the most populous Alaskan city. By taking SR 1, you’ll pass flatlands as well as scenic waters and marshland. Catch a glimpse of the common loon, a water bird, from a road pullout by the Summit Lakes. Bear and moose—best seen from a distance—also call the Kenai Peninsula home.
