16 Problems You’ll Only Understand If You’re An Alaskan Transplant

Moving to Alaska is a bucket list, once-in-a-lifetime dream for so many out there. But once you get here, let’s just say that adjusting to life in the last frontier doesn’t come without its challenges. The growing pains and learning curves will most definitely hit you out of nowhere and often times can send you flying straight into a ditch. The struggle is real, but SO worth it in the end…because, as we all know, life in Alaska is truly as good as it gets. We just have a lot of Alaska stereotypes that may very well exist for a reason, because it really is difficult to adjust to life up here!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

What is living in Alaska like?

Well, there are certainly some negatives (cost of living, and everything else, we’re looking at you!). If you want to start with the bad, check out this list. But there are so, so many benefits as well, and we definitely feel like the good outweighs the bad. If you want peace and quiet, moving to Alaska might be just what you need! Fresh air and beautiful scenery? We’ve got it!

What are some fun things to do in Alaska?

It goes without saying that we have a list of potential outdoor activities that rivals anywhere in the nation. If you want fun in the outdoors, Alaska is the place for it. We know the snow and cold scare some people off, but there’s plenty of activities that can keep you busy all year long here, from fishing to hiking. Just make sure you bundle up!

What are some natural wonders in Alaska?

We may be biased, but to be honest, the whole state is pretty much a natural wonder. Denali is of course a big one – it’s the highest peak in North America. We’ve also got, of course, the Northern Lights, which people come from all over the world to experience. Check out  this list of magnificent wonders you won’t want to miss.
