There are stage dances and you can also go to the nearby wilderness and mountains. So many things that you can actually do here and here are some of them.

Helicopter Tour with Glacier Landing

Try this exciting Helicopter tour in Anchorage! From Chugach Adventure camp, it takes about 60 minutes to take you over the Knik River and Glacier through the Great Gorge towards Colony Glacier, Whiteout Glacier and Lake George. But during the winter months, due to the snow covers and to ensure your safety, the helicopter may not be able to land directly on top of the glacier. It might be on the side next to the deep blue formations.
