Though it's only 40 miles from Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport, consider allowing extra time if you make the drive to Girdwood. The drive down the New Seward Highway is stunning—oh, that Turnagain Arm—and photo ops abound. Other options include a ride on the Alaska Railroad Coastal Classic or Glacier Discovery train (907/265–2494, 800/544–0552 www.alaskarailroad.com), or reserve a spot on the Magic Bus (907/230–6773 www.themagicbus.com), which runs between Anchorage and Girdwood year-round. Once in town, you'll need to rely on your own car, the Alyeska Resort shuttle service, or foot power.
