by 9tigers

RE: where can I get some fresh out of boat fish, crab or shrimp

I know you can get fish right off the docks at Seward. i only noticed halibut and salmon. I would think Homer would have is as it is a fishing town, but I have never been there..

by RickinDutch

Sad but true - fresh off the boat fish is harder to find that it should be. Fishermen have processing plants they deliver to directly before they ever come back to their berth. Every once in a while you'll find a boat selling at the dock but it is fairly rare and usually because there it either something wrong with the catch (too old) or it is an odd species that the plant doesn't want. We all just go out and get our own.

I live in the busiest fishing port in North America and I get my christmas gift packs of crab for the relatives back home from New Sagaya in Anchorage.

Another idea is to get out for a day's charter (Homer, Seward, Valdez, Anchor Point, etc.). Most boats will usually clean and vacuum pack your catch for a nominal fee.

Travel Tips for Anchorage

Hiking Trails

by PA2AKgirl

We have trails everywhere…in the city, outside of the city, in parks, along major highways…there’s no lack of hiking in the Anchorage area. If you drive out of the city and come to a turnout, you’ll see, in one tiny area there are many options for trails. They range in length and difficulty, catering to anyone. Raised boardwalks, paved paths, steep dirt trails, interpretive signs…you can hike forever in or around this city. It’s wonderful…each day you can choose something completely different or revisit the same place and it’s still spectacular. A lot of the time, the weather may not seem in your favor for hiking, but you get so used to the cold or rain, that you might decide to go anyway just to get out for awhile. Some of the trailheads have zero facilities (not even trashcans) so take everything with you. Definitely get a topographic map or the USGS quadrangles because those that are more out of the way may not be marked all that well. You may be visiting the city, but it doesn’t mean you have to do city things here. Big points for Anchorage on this one.

Classical view of Anchorage & Chugach Mountains

by victorwkf

You must have seen this classical view before on some travel brochures. Actually, it is taken at a view-point at the Earthquake Park at the south coast of the city. It is worth a visit to this historical park as well as get yourself in the photo.

Packing List

by MidnightSn1

Back packing type luggage very appropriate. I took regular luggage (soft sided) & too much of it. If have back pack, make sure has day pack so you can leave the large pack locked away somewhere. Good, sturdy pair of running/hiking type shoes work great. Rain gear. Heavy jacket with hood. I went in June & it was cool & just a little rainy on a few days. Nothing out of the ordinary. Photo supples eaily found. Disposable cameras are great; see people with them everywhere. I used a camera with a telephoto lens also.
Also, binoculars are great. Not allowed to get close to wildlife (against the law as a matter of fact).

Check out Mirror lake.

by phil5897

I read about this lake here on VT and it is nice not too far out of town but far enough to be out ofthe Anchorage area. I thas a small park area with swings and wonderful views of the surrounding hills. Fall colors were nice. All along the road on the way to Palmer are nice parks to pull over and exploor. Definitely get out of Anchorage and explore.

Wildlife Viewing

by Stephen-KarenConn

One need not venture too far off the beaten path to see wildlife in Anchorage. Sometimes moose come right into town, and smaller wildlife are often seen. However, a short trip out of the city will offer even greater opportunities for wildlife viewing.

Just south of Anchorage along the Seward Highway, #1, you will come to Potter Marsh. Here there is a boardwalk which provides a very good venue for spotting waterfowl.

Continue just a little further south to where the highway parallels Turnagain Arm you will see high rock cliffs to your left and a wide pullout area along the highway to your right. Stop here and scan the cliffs just above the highway and you have an excellent chance of spotting Dall Sheep, as the one pictured here. I have seen the sheep several times in this area. They seem to enjoy hanging out and catching a few warm rays of the sun on this south facing rock wall, and they are used to humans stopping to watch them. A good pair of binoculars or a telephoto lens will help.

Be careful and pull completely off the highway before you stop. People have been run over here.
