Want to go fishing? The salmon rich Ship Creek very conveniently runs out of the mountains and into Downtown Anchorage. During summer salmon runs the picking can be truly impressive. You’ll need to buy tickets for the derby at the Derby Cabin next to Comfort Inn though. Bird watching near the creek is also rich, especially at low tide, when the winged creatures come out to skip along the mud. Or if you just feel like relaxing, check out the Ship Creek Overlook, a nice if small park over the water.
