Lets say in mid-August it is possible you may have a few days to kill. Would you prefer to be in Anchorage or Fairbanks?
I know there's not much in Anchortown itself, what about the surrouding area? What can you do in Chugach park? Are there roads that you can drive through some parts of the park, Any chances of seeing sheep?
What about Fairbanks?
I will have a rental vehicle but at .60 cents a mile it is a factor.
