The Coastal trail is a 10 minute walk away, which goes for miles from the mountains to the Cook Inlet. In the winter, you can cross country ski on the beautifully groomed trail at no cost. Also 15 minutes away is Hilltop, a downhill skiing area, and 45 minutes away in Girwood is the Aleyska Resort. If you are interested in the outdoors, drive a short distance to the rapids, go glacier hiking, snowshooing, kayaking, and of course FISHING! We are 2 hours from the most popular Kenai River, and if you don't want to drive more than 10 minutes, go to Ship Creek in the middle of downtown Anchorage where fishing is free and abundant.
We live on a very quiet street, which is only 5 minutes to the University or Hospitals. Here you can take lesiurely walks in this much desired and well manicured neighborhood known as College Village. It is a short walk to public transporation, and downtown is a 10 minute drive away where the 5th Avenue Mall is located (Nordstroms, Gap, etc.), as well as an abundance of other retail stores. Also minutes away are 12 movie theatres and great restaurant. There is the Delaney Park Strip a few miles away, where there are baseball fields, parks, and 10 tennis courts.
We are a family of 5 and both my husband and I own a souvenir business located in downtown Anchorage. We love to play tennis, bike ride, walk, and take advantage of the outdoors here in Anchorage.
We are interested in swapping our house mostly in the winter months -- from November -March.
