The holiday season is a great time to visit Alaska’s largest city. Of course, it’s important to stay hydrated–so don’t miss “The 12 Days of Brandywine” from the Glacier Brewhouse (pictured, above). Stop in for a glass, or enjoy a flight of hand-picked selections from downtown Anchorage’s own brew-pub! Different vintages available each day until tomorrow, Dec. 21!

Sports, shopping, dining and entertainment–it’s all part of our “Big Wild Life” spirit in Anchorage. Come and visit. There’s lots going on.  Order your guide HERE.


a. “A Christmas Carol,” presented by the Perseverance Theatre in Anchorage Dec. 18-27. Enjoy the story of Ebeneezer Scrooge and the Four Ghosts of Christmas! At the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts.

b. “Every Christmas Story Ever Told” now playing at Cyrano’s. Three actors decide to perform every Christmas story ever told – plus Christmas traditions from around the world, seasonal icons from ancient times to topical pop-culture and every carol ever sung!

Dec. 31: Torchlight parade and Fireworks at Alyeska Resort. The New Year’s Eve Torchlight Parade is a “must see” event! Follow the parade of lights from top to bottom. The best viewing is from outside of the Daylodge. Fireworks to follow immediately. Photo, right, by Eric Teela.

Dec. 31: New Years Eve Celebration downtown. This annual celebration is a fun, family friendly andFREE event in Town Square held  from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Enjoy live music, street performers, food trucks and fireworks!

b. SteamDot Coffee inside the Williwaw, at 6th and F St. OK, this isn’t really “arts and culture,” but it’s my favorite new coffee shop. Here’s the big difference, though: this place has the FASTEST free internet in town! I clocked it at 94Mbps down/11Mbps up. Grab a cup of coffee and upload your 4K video files!!

Live-and-in-person help: Visit the famous “Log Cabin” visitors center downtown at 4th Ave. and G St.!
