Anchorage, Alaska is a consolidated city-borough (officially called the Municipality of Anchorage) in the U.S. state of Alaska. It is also a census area.

With 260,283 residents according to the 2000 census, Anchorage is the largest city in the state of Alaska, comprising more than two-fifths of the state's population. The population is somewhat misleading as the area of Anchorage is larger than that of Rhode Island and Delaware combined. The Census Bureau's official population estimate as of 2005 was 275,043.

The center of population of Alaska is located approximately 40 miles east of Anchorage. Anchorage is administrated by an elected mayor and assembly, and a city manager.

Average daytime summer temperatures range from approximately 55 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit; average daytime winter temperatures are about 5 to 30 degrees, which is actually in fact warmer than many places in "The Lower 48" of the United States. Average January low and high temperatures at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (PANC) are 9 degrees F / 22 degrees F with an average winter snowfall of 70.60 inches.

Summers are typically very mild and pleasant, though it can rain frequently. There isn't any beach-bathing in Anchorage, except at a few local lakes on the warmest summer days, when those lakeside beaches can be extremely popular.

Average July low and high temperatures are 52 degrees F / 66 degrees F and the hottest reading ever recorded was 86 degrees F on June 25, 1953.
