Car Travel

The Glenn Highway enters Anchorage from the north and becomes 5th Avenue near Merrill Field; this route will lead you directly into Downtown. Gambell Street leads out of town to the south, becoming New Seward Highway at about 20th Avenue. South of town, it becomes the Seward Highway. If you bring your RV or rent one on arrival, know that parking an RV Downtown on weekdays is challenging. There's a big parking lot on 3rd Avenue between C and E streets, but on summer weekends from 10 am to 6 pm it's reserved for the outdoor Anchorage Market. Parking is usually not a problem in other parts of town. You can find an up-to-date parking map of Downtown at (click on "Parking" under the "About Downtown" tab).
