Things to Do in Wasilla

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.
