Here Are The 5 Safest And Most Peaceful Places To Live In Alaska

Safety is always a priority, even in a state where the largest city has a population of less than 300,000 people. Living in an unsafe town can be a deal breaker for many families and since Alaska is made up of so many different towns, it’s always nice to know what some of the safest places in Alaska really are.

According to the FBI crime rates from 2013, a little outdated but still mostly accurate, these are the 5 safest places to live in  in the cities of Alaska.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

What is the most scenic town in Alaska?

With so many small towns dotted around our giant state, many places bring a lot of beauty to the table. Towns in different climates, and with different geography, offer many wonderful things. If you love the ocean, the scenery from Homer can be absolutely breathtaking. Descending into town and glimpsing the glaciers across the bay from this beautiful seaside spot is awe-inspiring. If you love the mountains, tiny Girdwood lodges itself in the valley beneath the Chugach mountain range. Wherever you go in town you’re greeted by majestic mountains towering over you. If you love endless acres of rolling tundra, or beautiful sunsets over the ocean, Nome, Alaska may be designated as the most scenic town in our state. The truth is, there are far more scenic towns that not, and we are so lucky to live in such a wondrous state.

Where can I find more of the best photos of Alaska?

If you’re looking for beautiful photos that showcase all the best Alaska has to offer, there are many places to find them. Check out Flickr for an opportunity for locals to show off the best photos they’ve taken of their hometowns and travel across Alaska. Getty Images has some stunning photographs taken by professional photographers, and if you look up local businesses on Facebook, many times they have great shots of the surrounding areas around their business. Instagram also has some wonderful photographers highlighting lovely photos of Alaska, and they are easy to track down using hashtags of a place you want to see in Alaska.
