Introducing Girdwood

Some 37 miles south of Anchorage, Alyeska Hwy splits off at Mile 90 Seward Hwy and heads 3 miles east to Girdwood, a small hamlet with a city-like list of things to do and see. Encircled by mighty peaks brimming with glaciers, Girdwood is a laid-back antidote to the bustle of Anchorage. Home to the luxurious Alyeska Ski Resort and the fabled Girdwood Forest Fair (www.girdwoodforestfair.com), Girdwood is a dog-and-kid kind of town with excellent hiking, fine restaurants and a feel-good vibe that will have you staying longer than anticipated.
