We all love the primal spectacle of a waterfall. It’s the exciting roar and whoosh of the cascade. It’s the mesmerizing sparkle and shimmer of the curtain over rock. It’s the invigorating rush of that cool, fresh air against your face—saturated with zesty negative ions and smelling of mountain spirit. (Plus, kids love them!)
Alaska has gobs of great waterfalls, but they’re often in remote or wild places. Fortunately Anchorage has its own catalog of cataracts, and most of them are easy to visit and accessible to families. Go drink them in!
