Located in south-central Alaska, Anchorage sits on a peninsula at the land’s end of Cooks Inlet. This prime location gives Anchorage residents the advantage of spectacular mountain, forest, and sea views and access to endless year-round outdoor activities in breathtaking scenery. Long summer days will invite you outside where you might head downtown to Ship Creek to catch your dinner and purchase some homegrown giant veggies at the farmers’ market to go along with your fresh salmon. Dogsledding, snowshoeing, and skiing are popular winter activities.
In addition to almost 300,000 human residents, Anchorage has a winter moose population of over 1000. Moose, bears, and other wildlife meander the streets and residents’ backyards. You can see that Anchorage is an incredibly diverse place to live! Not only is it possible that a moose will cross your path as you’re heading off to a Broadway show at the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts, but you can hear over 100 languages spoken within the city and surrounding communities. When you’re ready for some indoor time, you can explore cultural museums, concerts, participate in art classes, visit with friends over an artisanal brew, or shop to your heart’s content. There are many reasons to love Anchorage.
