Visit Anchorage: 100 Years of Arctic Flight

In Adventure, Anchorage, AV Geek, Destination, Parks, Transportation by scott


You know we love to fly here in Anchorage, dubbed the “Air Crossroads of the World“. So it should come as no surprise we’re making a big deal over 100 years of Arctic Flight!arctic_flight

Stop by the Anchorage Museum and see the glorious 1928 Stearman bi-plane. Above, I snapped this pic of another Stearman flying in Kodiak!

“Historical artifacts, video footage and photographs reveal the state’s remarkable aviation history, including its pioneer bush pilot era. From their open-air cockpits, Alaska’s early pilots faced some of the planet’s most inhospitable weather and challenging terrain without maps or accurate weather information.” 

–from Anchorage Museum’s “exhibit overview”

Make plans to visit the exhibit!

While you’re downtown, stop in to the Log Cabin Visitors Center at the corner of Fourth Avenue and F St. Pick up the new travel planner for 2013. Things to do. Places to stay. Sites to see.

100All this exploring is bound to make you hungry! So get on board with the “100 Days of Downtown Dining” in conjunction with the Anchorage Downtown Partnership! How does it work?  It’s simple: Enjoy lunch or dinner at participating restaurants and get stickers on your game card (available at participating restaurants). Visit at least six (6) different restaurants and collect a prize!
