Day Trip: Anchorage to Iditarod Headquarters

Distance and time: about 45 miles/ 50+ minutes

Iditarod Headquarters is located in Wasilla. The center has a museum, a gift shop, and videos about the race for viewing. When we visited, there were also puppies to visit and hold. The headquarters encourages you learn about the history of the Iditarod, and perhaps even ride down the trail. We especially enjoyed going into an adjacent shed and reading the labels on the dog food to compare nutrient content to pet store dog food brands.

P.S. We left our dog safe in our vehicle. The sled dogs seemed inclined to howl their interest in visiting dogs, and we didn’t want them to be disturbed by her presence or our pet to be intimidated.
