Joining hubby on part of his working trip around Alaska later this month. I will be in Anchorage a full day on my own (a Thursday, I think) without a car, and am looking for the best and safest things to do alone.
Been reading forums, and things like the the zoo, heritage center, and some of the museums sound about my speed. Looks like I can get shuttles to some of these places. Is that still true? Or is the bus system a better idea? Anything else that is good for a woman traveling alone to visit? I'm not a hiker but love to walk. Saw a walking tour of the city mentioned - would that be worthwhile?
Will be heading back to Anchorage at the end of the trip for another full day with hubby in tow to share what I enjoyed with him, so if there are other not-to-miss things to do that are better with two of us, please let me know. We also like to go out to hear live music during or after dinner - any suggestions? We are in our 50s, like acoustic guitar singer/songwriter type music or softer rock bands.
Thanks in advance for your help. Thanks also for all the help I've gotten from reading all the forums here in planning the rest of our itinerary. It's been a challenge having to plan around hubby's work assignments!
