What Kind of Family Fun Can Be Had near the Anchorage, Alaska Cruise Port?

Families should keep in mind that most family activities in Anchorage are either in museums or national parks. The Anchorage Zoo (20 minutes south on the Anchorage 1 Highway) is a favorite from children of all ages, because they can come face to face with rescued wild animals such as bald eagles and grizzly bears. Of course, the stars of this show are the polar bears. Another great option for family fun in Anchorage is the Alaska Native Heritage Center on 8800 Heritage Center Drive. This is a place to learn about native Alaskan and American cultures with interactive displays, native dance performances and much more. At the center you can also sign up for hiking and outdoor activities. For more information, read our feature article Anchorage Port Guide on CruiseReviews.com.
