    I'm sure we do. As for me and my vacationing house, we will follow Byron.

    You can do one-day glacier cruises out of Anchorage. Those are fun. I saw several orcas, sea otters, etc. And we got up close to several glaciers that were actively calving.

    You should be able to charter some halibut fishing. May is early for most salmon runs, but kings will be running in May/June.

    You should check into hiking options.

    I don't recall any eateries that grabbed my attention in Anchorage, but we were only there about 4-5 times a year for quick temple trips. I would head down the Seward towards Alyeska and look out over the Turnagain Arm to see if you can see some whales. coming in. You should have a pretty good supply of light by then. Once meetings are over I would head north to Denali and maybe stop into Fairbanks. You should be there right after breakup so the park may be open, but even if it isn't seeing Denali from Healy alone is an awesome experience. If you stop in Healy, go to Rose's cafe. I still have very pleasant memories of the burgers there. Nenana is a quaint town about an hour north of Healy that has a lot of native touristy stuff. You will probably miss break up where they have a pool each year to see when a tripod they set up on the ice on the river gives way. I never got to see it go and wasn't ever close in my guesses. Fairbanks is a great visit but having lived there for 3 years, I am not sure what kind of touristy things to do there would be other than maybe the UAF museum. I would just enjoy driving around and the scenery. But I am easy to please.
