Weekend in Alaska: Exploring Anchorage

Today is part 2 of the adventures exploring Anchorage (all the deets from the first half of the day were dished in this post)! We spent a couple hours wandering around the main strip of the town, popping in and out of every shop that seemed to catch our attention.

My favourite store was The Mercantile, a beautifully curated and merchandised menswear and accessories store. It may have been biased with the Filson bags that made me nostalgic of Seattle, but I loved the vibe of the overall shop. Not to mention, the dreamy workbench setup at the front window of the store where all the custom leather work and embossing magic happened!

Continuing to stroll through Anchorage, we ended up at Ship Creek Trail, a popular fishing spot. At this point in the afternoon, the lack of sleep was starting to kick in for all of us. Not to mention, the clouds were starting to sprinkle. We stood quietly, hoping for a bite on the line while listening to the rain.

After barely 8 hours of exploring Anchorage, we hopped in our rental car and headed towards Healy. The 4 hour drive north was nothing short of breathtaking scenery. Coupled with pouring rain, lots of 90s hip hop and R&B blasting through the car speakers, and delicious snacks, this made for the perfect mini road trip for the next part of the Alaska adventure: Denali National Park!
