Is it expensive to live in Alaska?
Due to shipping costs, it can be pretty expensive to live in this wonderful state. In Anchorage, the largest city in Alaska, you’ll find that prices don’t exceed well known expensive cities like New York City, San Fransisco, Honolulu, and other cities. But once you head out into the smaller areas of the state where the only supplies to be found have to be flown in by small planes, the prices rise exponentially.
