The Community 

  • Anchorage, Alaska, rests on the Cook Inlet, bordered by six mountain ranges and warmed by a maritime climate to provide year-round adventure and recreation.
  • A city with close to 300,000 people, Anchorage balances modern urban life with easy access to outdoor activities and summer days offering up to 22 hours of sunlight. Anchorage is a place with big-city amenities: museums, shops, theaters, an excellent music scene, and fine restaurants that highlight the local fare of king crab, halibut, and salmon. It is also home to Alaska’s largest college, the University of Alaska Anchorage. 
  • Activities include easy access to skiing, biking, fishing, river rafting, 60 glaciers within 50 miles of downtown, and dazzling northern lights. Bordering much of the city is Chugach State Park, a 495,000-acre wilderness area and the fourth largest state park in the United States. With over 280 miles of trails, the park offers hiking, backpacking, and biking opportunities for people of all skill levels, with many trailheads accessible from downtown Anchorage in 30 minutes or less.
  • Anchorage residents experience low tax rates due to no state income tax and no sales tax in the Municipality of Anchorage. Anchorage also holds Alaska’s largest school district and embraces many cultures showcasing approximately 100 languages being spoken throughout the schools. 
  • Anchorage Fur Rendezvous, or simply "Rondy," as most locals call it, is one of the best winter festivals in Alaska. Participants sculpt ice, ride the Ferris wheel, take part in the entertaining Outhouse Race, and watch the Running of the Reindeer through downtown Anchorage. Another highlight is the Summer Solstice Festival, which is a family-friendly festival that takes over downtown Anchorage with live music, food, family activities, food trucks, and a beer garden.
