How will you spend your next day off this November? We suggest one of these options:
1. Aurora Viewing – If the weather permits, Aurora viewing in November can be wonderful. But, for that to happen it needs to be a clear day. One of the closest spots to Anchorage where you will escape the cities lights is the Glen Alps parking lot, only a 20-minute drive from downtown. An easy activity to do last minute!
2. Ski Season (MIGHT) Begin – If the snow gods bless us this year, the slopes will be open by mid-November. If that’s the case head to Alyeska Resort, Hilltop, or Arctic Valley for good skiing close to Anchorage. If we don’t get so lucky with the snow, you’ll have to patiently wait until December.
3. Hit the Trails – If ski season has not arrived yet because of the lack of snow, hit the trails by foot or bike to enjoy the last few weeks of hiking and biking without snow on the ground. Trails for hiking and biking in and around Anchorage and Wasilla are almost limitless, so just grab your gear and go. It’s also the time of year animals will go into hibernation, so you may not have as many encounters – but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be prepared!
4. Explore the City – Not sure what to do one of the weekends in November? Pretend you are a tourist to Anchorage and go to a coffee shop, restaurant and museum you have never been to. The Anchorage area has a lot to offer and sometimes, as a local, we take that for granted!
