Introducing Girdwood

Best known for its luxurious Alyeska Ski Resort and the fabled Girdwood Forest Fair (www.girdwoodforestfair.com) - a much-anticipated romp that occurs on the first weekend of July near town, featuring food, crafts and music aplenty - Girdwood is grand. Enfolded in mighty peaks famed for skiing, and overlooking the beauty of Turnagain Arm, the town is a magnet for epicurean urbanites, artists and hippies successful in spite of themselves. It has fine restaurants, great hiking, a colorful town center and not one but two trams.
