Bringing your furry friend to Anchorage is not a problem at all. This city welcomes pets and you can find a wide selection of pet-friendly hotels all over Anchorage. This way, you can choose a hotel that is close to a dog park and near restaurants that are pet friendly.
It is very important to our four-legged buddies that they can run around and exercise once in a while. There are a few off-leash dog parks, such as University Lake and Arctic Benson Park. Here, they can meet other pets as well. Of course, you can take them to Earthquake Park too, if you make sure your dog is leashed. It is a great place for humans as well, since you can go hiking and see the hilly area that an earthquake caused in 1964.
Another popular spot is the Anchorage Light Speed Planet Walk near the Sullivan Arena. This walk gives you an idea of how our solar system works. By strolling up to planets, you can discover their distance from the sun. The model is to scale and each step equals the distance of 300,000 kilometers, which is how fast light travels in just one second. You have probably never walked that far with your dog! Afterwards, you both can relax in one of the pet-friendly restaurants Anchorage has to offer. Spenard Roadhouse, for example, allows dogs as long as they are leashed to their outdoor seats.
