History of Anchorage
This article covers the history of Anchorage, Alaska. Originally settled as a tent city near the mouth of Ship Creek in 1914, a townsite was platted the following year alongside the bluff to the south. Anchorage was mostly a company town for the Alaska Railroad for its first several decades of existence. The strategic location of Alaska, which led to a massive buildup of military facilities throughout Alaska during the years of World War II, changed that. Largely due to the military presence and resource development activities throughout Alaska, Anchorage has enjoyed significant boosts to its population and economic base from 1940 to the present. The 1964 Alaska earthquake outright destroyed or caused significant damage to most of the Anchorage neighborhoods adjacent to Knik Arm, including its downtown. The community rapidly rebuilt, and has since emerged as a major American city.

Best 3 day Denali tour from Anchorage | United States Forum | Fodor's Travel Talk Forums
Would like some advice on a 3 day tour into Denali National Park. We would like to take the train from Anchorage the first day, then a tour into the park on the second day and return to Anchorage the 3rd day. There seems to be so many tours I am getting confused. Where is the best place to stay at the park. I gather the accommodation is at the park entrance. How many different tours do the park? We are planning this for 6/7/8 Sept this year and we are from Australia and have never been to Alaska before. Appreciate some advice. Thanks Posted in the United States forum
