The Huffington Post created a list of 20 awesome U.S. cities to visit on an urban vacation or on a cross-country road trip. Along with cities like Nashville , New Orleans, and Honolulu, Anchorage claims a spot on the list for the adventurous and outdoorsy.
"If you're looking for an adventure, you can't get much better than Anchorage. Anchorage has all the appeals of an urban city, with perfect proximity to untouched wilderness. While in the city, visit the Anchorage Museum, which recently received a $75 million renovation, or rent a bicycle and tour the city (which has been nicknamed "Bike Uptopia") on wheels. Right outside Anchorage is Chugach State Park -- the perfect place to ski, hike, raft, camp or climb."
