Do you have any more towns that you think is one of the best places to live in Alaska? Where do you live in Alaska, and what makes it great? Let me know in the comments below.
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.
Casea Peterson grew up archery hunting, fishing, and camping throughout the Pacific Northwest. Motivated by her love for the outdoors she moved to Alaska to attend school and to spend time exploring the last frontier. If she doesn’t have a pen in hand or her nose in a book, she can be found out on a lake or up in the woods around a fire with friends.
