Arriving at the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport, a visitor steps outside and is greeted to the sight of the Chugach Mountains which define the eastern border of the city. Anchorage is Alaska's largest city with over a quarter million residents. The airport is well suited to a modern city of this size.
Alaska is the largest state in the United States by area. It is situated in the northwest extremity of the North American continent, with Canada to the east, the Arctic Ocean to the north, and the Pacific Ocean to the west and south, with Russia further west across the Bering Strait. Approximately half of Alaska's 710,231 residents (as per the 2010 United States Census) live within the Anchorage metropolitan area. Alaska is the least densely populated state of the U.S.Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alaska
