Alaska has a ton of amazing natural features, and many of the towns in this state grow up around these beautiful sights that people want to see. The towns usually stay small because these natural wonders are located in rural areas that are expensive to travel to, and can sometimes be isolated. This means the scenery and vistas stay gorgeous, and these towns stay as stunning accents to Alaska’s natural beauty.
What is the most beautiful city in Alaska?
This is a tough one and is entirely subjective. Homer is stunning as it sits right on the seaside, and as you drive into town you can see glaciers hanging in the mountains across the bay. Girdwood is charming as its a tiny little town in a valley beneath hanging glaciers and a beautiful mountain range. Juneau is sandwiched between the ocean and the mountains, with a colorful downtown, and even Anchorage has charm as it sits between the Cook Inlet and the beautiful Chugach Mountain Range. It’s hard to name a city in Alaska that doesn’t have appeal!
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.
