Are all the towns in Alaska small?

There are a couple of large cities in Alaska, but most of the state is made up of tiny towns. The entire state has less than a million people, which is less than some state’s smaller cities! Many towns and villages are also hard to get to without flying there, so it makes the towns much smaller than they would be if they were accessible by road.

What time of year is best to move to Alaska?

Summer is the best time to move because it’s easier to do so. Winter has cold, brisk weather, with plenty of snow or rain. Ferries, planes, and other transportation may be limited if you’re moving to a smaller town, so it may be hard to get there. If you’re moving to a bigger city, then finding a rental should be easy to do all year long.
