Wasilla is situated between two rivers, both of which were formed by ancient glaciers and work with the city’s mountain views to paint the picture of natural beauty. Wasilla is small, with a population of only 7,831 people, but has a big city attitude that is perfectly paired with small-town values and charm.
In terms of things to do, Wasilla definitely isn’t lacking. Located along the Iditarod Trail is the Knik Museum -- a two storey museum that was formerly a pool hall and is now home to the Dog Musher’s Hall of Fame. Alongside the museum, Wasilla also offers golf at the Settlers Bay Golf Course, kayaking and canoeing, and sightseeing tours. For visitors who like the outdoors, there are a number of great hiking trails and a reptile rescue operation that offers birthday party appearances and presentations. A dog sledding class is offered in the Wasilla area and is a popular activity for visitors, as it gives them the chance to train sled dogs and control their own sled and dog team.
The best time to embark on your Alaskan adventure is between June and August, as summer is in full swing and the temperatures are warm and welcoming.
With so much adventuring, you’re bound to get hungry. Satisfy your hunger pains by indulging in the tasty food that Wasilla has to offer. Stop by Evangelo’s Restaurant for some pizza or treat yourself to cookies and a cup of coffee at North Star Bakery. If you’re not in the mood for pizza or sweets, try out one of Wasilla’s other local gems- you won’t be disappointed.
Join the locals at the Old Town Autumn Fest Celebration -- a spooky fun celebration that includes wagon rides, kids activities, hot apple cider and cookies, and of course, trick or treating. If you’re looking for even more Halloween fun, you could also attend the Halloween Spooktacular. For an everyday event, however, look no further than the Wasilla Farmer’s Market, where you’ll find an abundance of vendors and your new favorite Wasilla souvenir.
Spend some time having fun with the family and stop by Bouncin Bears indoor playground.
