Anchorage, Alaska Just because you folks in the lower 48 have to make the long haul to get there doesn't mean Anchorage is a place beer lovers should skip. Between Glacier BrewHouse or Midnight Sun, Anchorage Brewing, Broken Tooth Brewing and Theatrepub, Moose's Tooth Pub and Pizzeria, King Street Brewing and Snowgoose Restaurant and Sleeping Lady Brewing, beer lovers can piece together a better brewery crawl here than in any location we've named so far. Its also one of the best pure vacations as well, as the summer months are a great time to check out the glaciers, fjords, waterfalls, orcas and eagles of Prince William Sound or grab a beer at Glacier Brewhouse during the beautiful summer months. Anchorage's ports are just loaded with cruise ships full of folks like yourself who'll be booking horseback trips through the mountains, trying to catch a peek at caribou, lynx and grizzlies during various trail hikes and packing the Alaska Native Heritage Center and the Anchorage Museum. So what can you do to keep from missing out on the last table at the WildRide Sled Dog Rodeo dinner theater or the kite flying at Delaney Park Strip? Grab an Alaska Tour Saver coupon booklet, book early and get half-price deals on Mount McKinley sightseeing, glacier cruises, remote wilderness lodges, Denali National Park train rides and glacier/wildlife/sightseeing packages. -- Written by Jason Notte in Portland, Ore. >To contact the writer of this article, click here: Jason Notte. >To follow the writer on Twitter, go to http://twitter.com/notteham. >To submit a news tip, send an email to: email@example.com.
