The Strange Town In Alaska Where Everyone Lives Under The Same Roof

One of the strangest towns in Alaska, maybe even the entire country, can be found approximately 60 miles southeast of Anchorage. At first glance, this place may seem like any other typical seaside village. However, it isn’t long before visitors figure out that there’s something truly incredible about this place: most of the residents live under the same roof. Yes, you read that correctly. This town is so small that most of the people who live here are actually one another’s neighbors. And that’s not the only quirk this town contains. Whittier may just be one of the most unique communities you’ll ever come across, but that’s exactly what makes it such a fascinating place to visit.
