I like to get a hotel room downtown and spend some time walking around. I stumbled on this little park in the middle of winter and was very glad that I did. There is a great view and a little bit of history too.

A small park with a view of Cook Inlet. A nice place to see the city and get a view of the coast. Park consists of a deck, sculpture and viewpoint.
