Alaska: Anchorage Market and FestivalCourtesy Bill Webb
While Anchorage isn’t the capital of Alaska, it is the state’s largest and most populated city. The Anchorage Market and Festival is open and free of charge on weekends. It features 300 vendors, located on seven acres downtown. Anchorage is also at the beginning of the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, where walks and hikes can last between two hours and a half-day. Free, of course. If you’re ready for sightseeing, find out the most impressive library in every state.
