“Anchorage is an incredible town to live in, and a great one to visit as well! We are the gateway to the beautiful and wild Alaskan outdoors. With mountains and ocean on all sides of our small city, there is an activity for everyone.” – Current resident review from Niche.com

“One of the many commendable aspects of Anchorage is their support of local businesses. Local industry is held in high regard for Alaskans, you can see it in the thriving markets and mom and pop shops around town. Fitness is also taken very seriously here, darkness and snow don’t hold Alaskans back in the slightest. You can see locals cross country skiing or fat tire biking down the road in the middle of winter. If these aspects don’t appeal to you maybe food will. If you’re in the mood for pizza look no further than Moose’s Tooth Pub & Pizzeria.” – Current resident review from Niche.com

“Anchorage is a small but booming city. It is the largest and most populated city in the state and has everything a large city has but on a smaller scale. It is also one of the most diverse cities in the United States which makes it great to grow up in/raise children in.” – Current resident review from Niche.com
