Merill Field Airstrip:
(Largest Small Plane Airport in the World): 1 Block south

Merrill Field was established in 1930 one mile east of downtown Anchorage on 436 acres. This was the first real airport in Anchorage. The airport bears the name of Russel Hyde Merrill. Russel Merrill was an early Alaskan aviation pioneer who disappeared in September 1929 on a flight to Bethel. The first aviation beacon in the Territory of Alaska was located at Merrill Field and was dedicated on September 25, 1932 to the honor of Russ Merrill.

Anchorage is the starting point for your Alaska adventure. South is the Kenai Peninsula for great fishing, winter sports and Prince William Sound. North is the Matanuska Valley, famous for giant cabbage.
