Girdwood, Alaska: Year-Round Alpine Activities One Hour from Anchorage
The prospect of gold brought the first people to Girdwood, a small town about an hour outside of Anchorage in southern Alaska. Originally named Glacier City, it was a mining boomtown for more than 30 years. Today, however, Girdwood is best known for outdoor adventure—you can find year-round activities in Chugach State Park, a sprawling expanse of mountainous terrain that completely surrounds the town.
