We enjoyed learning about the earthquake in addition to a nice stroll on the well paved paths. However, there were a ton on mosquitos, so we turned around earlier than we would have liked.

Looking for someplace to get a bit of exercise while on vacation, we decided to head to Earthquake Park. The park is free, have plenty of walking and even provides signs with the history of area and the 1964 earthquake. It overlooks Cooks Inlet.
