    Going on a St. Paul Island sea duck hunt and fly into Anchorage in mid-January. Wondering if there is anything to do or see in Anchorage/Seward area in January. Need to get tickets soon and wondering if I should fly out a couple days early.

    Not much to see other than snow and darkness. Its pretty dead up here at that time of the year.

    In Seward there is the Sea Life Center and you can get a close up look at some sea ducks and seals. Nice pretty drive through the mountains as well.

    In downtown Anchorage I recommend to visitors that enjoy firearms to check out the Roosevelt Room at the Antique Gallery (1001 W 4th AVE).

    Did some checking for you. 3 different rental car co will give you a 2 day rental for 50.00 The name of the hotel with the tram ride is the Alyeska . It is 35 miles from Anchorage. Last year in Jan there was a ice carving competition and alaska beer and barley festival. Check out www.goanchorage.net. If you see any old crab pot netting. Pick me up a piece,THANKS JOHN:cool:

    +1 on the Roosevelt Room at the Antique Gallery....great firearms,artwork and decoys. Also great native arts such as baskets and ivory.

    For a great meal in downtown I really reccomend Orso. On the fancy end but a nice treat after a week in the sticks.

    I also am very fond of a dive bar called "Darwin's Theory" between 4th and 5down town.

    lots of art gallerries, fur shops and toursty stuff too.

    If you get hungry for pizza while you're in Anchorage, there's really only one place to go--Moose's Tooth just off the Seward Highway.
