Are you thinking of moving to Anchorage? Well, start packing! Here are the top ways that Anchorage is the place to call home!

BEST PLACE TO LIVE

Living in Anchorage definitely means a different lifestyle. It is a place where outdoor adventures and modern amenities meet up. A young city only founded in 1914 full of galleries and fine-dining restaurants in the city yet so near from some of the last true, unspoiled wilderness in the U.S. And not just that, it was named one of America’s richest cities and one of the top 100 best places to live!

NATURE AND ADVENTURE

If you are an adventure seeker, Anchorage is the place for you. Take a dip in Jewel or Goose Lake or go fishing or canoeing on Mirror Lake during summer or in winter, enjoy the city’s great outdoors where you will find some of the best skiing trails in the country, try snowshoeing and sledding too.

What else can you find? The Northern Lights, snow-capped mountains, streams, rivers, lakes, and oceans, sprawling forests! Rich wildlife with 5 national parks where you live with moose, eagles and beluga whales, get up close with glaciers - Anchorage has more than 50 glaciers in its city limits alone. Explore Portage Glacier, Anchorage’s top attraction, at least once in your lifetime – or not just once if you’re planning living here.

DIVERSITY

Anchorage is one of the most diverse populations in terms of ethnicity and culture in all the U.S. beating out Queens, New York. It’s usual to hear to "What's your name?" or "Where are you from?" because everyone is from everywhere. Nearly 100 languages are spoken by students in the Anchorage School District so students are exposed to dozens of languages every day which can help prepare them for the global marketplace.

Anchorage is diverse yet laid back- you’ll see locals in jeans and t-shirts even in high-end restaurants!
