What’s the best part about living in a small town in Alaska?
There are so many wonderful reasons to pass on a large city and settle down in a small town in Alaska. Mainly, the sense of community. Alaskans take care of their neighbors, and the small town communities really highlight that. And it’s nice to be away from the busyness of the big cities, where sometimes it can feel like you’re not even in Alaska, just another big city.
Should I visit a small town when I’m traveling to Alaska?
Absolutely! The small towns are huge on charm, and fun things to do. It’s a wonderful way to get up and close to what Alaska has to offer, and the different way of life out here. It’s also nice to help support the small businesses that make this state run, and you tend to find more of them in small towns.
