"In 1964 the worst earthquake..." Anchorage Favorite Tip by CubsIn4

Anchorage General: 71 reviews and 62 photos

Favorite thing: In 1964 the worst earthquake in North American history struck the city of Anchorage, leveling most of its buildings and in some cases permanently changing its landscape. Its residents rebuilt their city, and since then it has become the largest and most important in Alaska. At Earthquake Park you can see how the land was changed by the disaster. You can also get some stunning views across the water to the mountains.

Fondest memory: When I think of Anchorage I think first of all of mountains. Although not close to the city, they are very visible and very beautiful.
