Anchorage in March

by bobandwinnie

(This is also posted on the Alaska forum.) My wife and I will be in Anchorage Mar 19-23, 30-31 and are looking for recommended sites and activities to the south. It has been difficult to find anything specific, as most posted events, trips, etc. operate only from May to September. The CofC in Seward for example just sent us some brochures of what is available in the active season. We will have a car and want to focus on the Kenai, but that is as far as we have progressed. Also, if anyone has recommendations on hotels, lodges in the south (Seward? Homer?) we would appreciate your input. (As info, we have plans to be in Fairbanks and north later in the month to see the Aurora.) Thanks for your help.

I live in Fairbanks and would be happy to make recommendations. A while back I posted recommendations for appropriate outdoor clothing for March weather. See the VT Fairbanks forum. Fairbanks is glorious in March (my favorite month here along with June), and there are many activities then.

Hi, I live in Anchorage and own a photography company. Let me know what specifically you are interested in and I can probably help you out, even in March! Most companies do book May-Sept, but there are alot of Mom and Pop ones that do operate year round. you can reach me offline at alaskaparks@msn.com
Have a great trip!

I think Gray Whale tours run in March out of Seward? Try KenaiFjords.com for info. Do you ski/snowboard or nordic ski? Snowmobile or dogsleds interest you? March is usually dynamite for snow sports. As far as accommodations check out B&Bs – they are usually the best bang for the buck and because quite a few of the operators live at the home they will rent rooms year-round. Homer and Seward have some really nice places but also check out Anchorage's B&Bs.

Travel Tips for Anchorage

Your Pet-Kennel Stays in Anchorage/Wasilla/Palmer

by evaesq

If you need to leave your pet in a kennel for anytime in or around Anchorage, be aware that there are lots of kennels to choose from. We left our dog and cat at TLC Kennels in Wasilla (formerly Greatland Kennels) 745-5380 for more than 10 days. I must say that though the physical location looks dismal, the people who run the kennel are true animal lovers and clearly enjoyed our dog. She came out of her stay a happy animal as did our cat.

We did have one major problem with TLC, however. We asked that our dog have a bath before we pick her up. She was bathed and her nails were cut so short that they were bleeding when we got her. That was a major disappointment. Clearly, though the owners are animal lovers, their groomers are not knowledgeable and may have some streaks of cruelty in them.

Other choices for kennels include Rabbit Creek Kennel (345-1152) and the various VCA sites. If you want other choices feel free to contact me.

Learn about Wolves around the...

by EdinburghRoc

Learn about Wolves around the corner from the State Trooper Museum which is on 6 ave.
Go to the Saturday Market which you will find near the State Mon ,Anchorage hotel. Learning about the Brown Bears on 4th Ave in Public Lands Info. It's close to the info centre. Belive me it's a great film.

Whoa, a Moose!

by AlexisElizabeth

You might be more likely to see a moose by accident than when you are looking for one! They often wander into town and you could encounter them in the strangest places...by the side of the road, downtown, next to an office building, outside the window at a restaurant you're sitting in. They really are incredible creatures that manage to pull off a mix of awkwardness and grace in their manner/movements at the same time.

Extensive Bike Paths

by RickinDutch

Anchorage has developed an extensive bike path system over the years. A highlight is the Coastal Trail which runs from downtown to Kincaid Park just south of the airport. Great vistas and an upclose look at the damage from the Good Friday earthquake as the trail runs thru Earthquake Park - a large chunk of land than fell away in 1964.

The trails are open to walkers and runners as well. They are fairly safe, but if walking I'd suggest you don't go alone thru the more heavily forested parts.

Red Salmon Spawning in Ship Creek

by Tugboatguy

Ship Creek runs between Elmendorf Air Force Base and North Anchorage flowing down into Knik Arm near the entrance to Anchorage's deep water ship port. A special viewing area at a dam over Ship Creek is fenced for safety and is ideal for viewing salmon spawning in the shallow of the fast water gravel bed creek. While I was there, a Japanese group from a Tour Bus were gathered watching the romantic fish action; the Voyeurs!! just kidding!

Salmon spawning is a serious business because adult salmon return from the ocean to the waters where they originated from fertilized roe in the spawning process. They mate to produce new salmon, and then die; carcasses of dead salmon were in the creek and flycasting fishermen were fishing downstream. In late August the red salmon (with humped backs) were actively spawning and easy to see in the shallow waters. I took a number of pictures of several males attempting to mate with single females. The males are brighter in color and the female red salmon are drab. (Please, no email about this-it is just the way Mother Nature is here). Please enlarge the pictures to better see the fish.

From downtown Anchorage, Go on A Street north down hill becomes Loop Road, cross Ship Creek and turn right on E. Whitney Road a short distance past the upscale Bridge Restaurant spanning Ship Creek to the dam and bridge viewing area. Do this ONLY in daylight hours. This area is a free exhibit with some interpretive panels to view and read. Park right at the exhibit area and make a careful U-turn to return to downtown Anchorage in the reverse of the directions. Do NOT try to turn right into the commercial port area on Port Road-this port entry is controlled and off-limits to tourist vehicles.
