This mall is very convenient for the huge number of tourist in the Summer. They have done a good job renovating the mall over the last couple of years.

So many great stores and lots of shopping options. You can get clothes, beauty products, food, jewellery and more. Plus a few big stores. You can walk around this mall and not get lost.

This is a good-sized downtown mall with an array of good stores and a nice variety of eateries and a nice food court. It is within walking distance of the Captain Cook Hotel, and other hotels. Worth walking to and visiting.

We stayed close to this mall. It has a JC Penney and a Nordstrom shop. There is a good food court on the top level. There are a variety of small retail shops also. As an Australian, I missed the convenience of a pharmacy and...More

My wife and I both really like the Anchorage 5th Avenue Mall. In many respects, along with the Performing Arts Center (The PAC), the 5th Avenue Mall is the very heart of downtown Anchorage. Parking is easy at two locations. The J.C.Penney Parking Garage and...More
