In Alaska, we’d rather be weird than be normal. We love to stand out and we don’t really care if we fit in. You see, we are all about dancing to the beat of our own drum and being individuals up here in the Last Frontier, which means that there are a fair amount of Alaska stereotypes out there. The status quo is just so ‘lower 48’ and we are okay with it staying down there. We’re Alaskans and proud of it! And without further ado, check out these 20 extremely weird things that only people from Alaska do.

Things People From Alaska Do

Is it easy to live in Alaska?

It's not always easy to live in Alaska!

  • The distances can be far to travel.
  • Goods are expensive.
  • The winters can be long and cold.

But this state offers so much beauty and fun, that it’s an absolute blast to live here!

Where is the best city in Alaska to live in?

While there are many options, the following are just a few places to consider:

  • Juneau is our capital city, but not our largest city. It is only accessible by sea or boat, so it’s a little isolated.
  • Fairbanks is the largest city in the Interior of Alaska, where temperatures can get mighty cold in the winter, but the people are so friendly.
  • Anchorage is the largest and busiest city, with plenty of jobs, housing, and the cheapest goods and groceries you’ll find in the state.

But when many people come to Alaska, they’re looking for a wonderful small town to live in, and we have plenty of those, too!
