Lake Hood Swimming Beach

Don’t be fooled by the name of this park—you can’t actually swim here. The beach was once a place for aquatic recreation, but now serves as a nice place to enjoy afternoon picnics and watch the airplanes takeoff and land at Lake Hood, the world busiest float plane base. These floatplanes can take you into remotes parts of Alaska to experience fishing, bear viewing and sightseeing.
