This is definitely something every Alaskan should do/see, and something that would be super fun to take out of state visitors to. It's a good chance to learn about the sport that's been so important to this state.

So much fun holding the Alaskan Husky puppies, petting the other dogs, watching the informative video and going through the small museum. The people were very friendly and the $10 sled ride is a must do! It’s easy to miss the turn-off but worth finding.

Amazing to see the 83 sleds sliding on the 4th street in downtown Anchorage. Fantastic feeling with all the people around. This is the biggest event in winter time in Alaska.

There are visits to dog sledders and other attractions. Some people helicopter up the mountains to go sledding in the summer. Try the Anchorage tourist board website for further details.
