Lake Hood

185 Aircraft Drive, Anchorage, Alaska

Practical Info

The best stationary spot to watch the seaplanes is the Lake Hood Swimming Beach (now a misnomer) on the north shore; a popular walking and biking trail rims the lake. Guests at the B&B-style Lake Hood Inn (4702 Lake Spenard Dr.) can watch the planes take off and land from the front porch. Many seaplane “flightseeing” tour companies departing the Anchorage area for popular spots such as the Kenai Fjords National Park, Denali and more depart from Lake Hood, with most bookings handled at independent company offices or online.
