A good time in Alaska can mean zipping over untouched forests, or sitting down with friends for a meal. Whatever your definition of a good time is, new developments in and around Anchorage give travelers extra options while enjoying Alaska.

The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center’s BEARS Boardwalk was completed late last summer and offers visitors the chance to get up close and personal with the resident black and brown bears. The elevated walkway within the bear enclosures allows visitors to get unobstructed views of Alaska’s largest land mammals. The vast center is also home to moose, musk ox and other iconic Alaska animals. alaskawildlife.org162959_num691392

And for all those adventure junkies, outfitter Denali Zipline Tours is opening up shop on the Kenai Peninsula. The new adventure park will open in Seward and offer a canopy tour of the forest with views of the surrounding landscape and mountains while zipping along several thousand feet of cable. The same company also operates a tour in the Talkeetna area. denaliziplinetours.com

The Millennium Alaskan Hotel in Anchorage is perhaps best known as race headquarters for the Iditarod Sled Dog Race®, and the property is getting a facelift. The hotel is completing room renovations, as well as improvements to the on-site restaurant and bar. millenniumhotels.com/usa/destinations/anchorage/

It’s a rockin’ good time in Southcentral Alaska! The Hard Rock Cafe is opening its first Alaska restaurant in downtown Anchorage, on the corner of 4th and E St.
