ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- The Port of Anchorage is offering an up-close look at local economic action with free tours of the port this summer.
Every Sunday from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m., you can take a free bus tour of the port. Buses leave every 30 minutes from the Alaska Railroad corporate office.
Along the tour, port guides point out the features that make it Alaska's premier port. There's also a stop at the port itself for free food.
"Very informative, very informative and you get free hot dogs," said tour participant Carolyn Ekkens. "But yeah -- we don't realize how much preparation goes into it. And because of the new expansion program, this type of thing, Anchorage is always building and making it better."
