Is it expensive to live in a small town in Alaska?
It depends on where the small town is located, but generally, yes. You’ll find that Anchorage, the largest city in the state, is the most affordable option due to the expensive cost of shipping supplies up to Alaska. When everything has to make its way even further from Anchorage, which is the first stop for most packages and goods, it makes up the price even further.
Is it worth it to live in a small town in Alaska?
Absolutely! Even though the cost of living can be higher, there’s magic in the small towns of Alaska. The communities are smaller, you are more likely to be friendlier with your neighbors, and there’s a bond when you live out in the middle of nowhere in a state as fascinating and awe inspiring as Alaska. Rural has a whole different meaning when you live in the Last Frontier!
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.
