Anchorage is not only privy to seeing this firsthand, but also hosts the Discovery Theatre, where a three hundred picture slide show has been assembled for the visual enjoyment of visitors. Guests of Anchorage vacation rentals can also enjoy the widespread natural beauty and wildlife of Anchorage on whale-watching or pleasure cruises; or simply on a hiking or biking trail. Some other attractions include the Fourth Avenue Theater, now converted to a local pictorial history museum, and the Oscar Anderson House, former home to early Swedish immigrants.
The capital of Alaska, is also the largest city of the “Last Frontier”. Here, in the land of the Inuit where the sun stays up late and wakes up early, guests of Anchorage vacation rentals can enjoy all that this destination has to offer. From the stunning Arctic scenery to the cultural attractions of Anchorage, there is truly something for everyone.
Drop by the Imaginarium Science Discovery Center if you are interested in hands-on science and fascinating displays of technology that are suitable for all ages.

Big Lake

Extolled as “Alaska’s year-round playground”, this town is filled with not only breathtaking arctic scenery but year round attractions, seasonal events, and a wide variety of enjoyable activities. Guests of Big Lake vacation rentals and homes are sure to enjoy the offerings of this small, relaxing town, which range from the natural to the artificial and the grandiose to the quaint. Big Lake hosts the annual Denali Golf Tournament and the Big Lake Triathlon in June, and the scenic attractions of the area endure year round. There is also a shopping mall and a marina filled with recreational craft on the lake itself. Fishing is an extremely popular pastime in Big Lake, and there are also traces of the host Inuit culture in the area. This is not the big city; rather, it is a small town ideal for recreation and relaxation. Anchorage, however, can be reached through a short drive for those who crave more excitement.
