“Very helpful staff”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

If you are new to Alaska, you should pay a visit to this place to chalk out the places you need to visit, if your homework is partly done. The staff manning the centre is very helpful and accommodating and will answer every query and will even help you to plan your itinerary.

“First place to visit in Anchorage!”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

Staffed by volunteers the center provides great information to travellers. They assist in choosing between guides and travel companies, how to obtain discounts and what are the best things to see. Well worth the time and will save you valuable time.

“Get lots of information”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

You can see a huge boulder of jade sitting right outside the door, and you will see a very original looking little building housing the information center. If you are looking for information on what to do, where to go, or just a friendly face, this is the place to go. There are so many brochures and folks who will happily give you their info about all things in the area.

Thank you for your review of Visit Anchorage's downtown visitor information centers. You'd be surprised how many walk right past a 5,114-pound jade boulder without realizing what it is! Our log cabin has been there since 1955, and our volunteers love giving advice and information on what to see and do. Thanks again for your feedback.

“Worth a brief visit - help available here!”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

Visited Anchorage as part of a National Railway Historical Society convention and took a number of trips in and out of Anchorage on the ARR. The Alaska Railroad is one of Alaska's jewels - thoroughly enjoyed the station and our trips.

Thanks for your review of the Visit Anchorage log cabin visitor information center. Visit Anchorage also orchestrated your welcome at the downtown depot, and we enjoyed hosting all the railroad fans who came to Anchorage for the national convention.

“Great stop for out of towners”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Good starting point for visitors unfamiliar with what Alaska has to offer. Great location in the heart of downtown with shopping and dining available everywhere. Reindeer sausage street vendor is a must!
