Anchorage: Stunning surroundings, a strong and diverse economic base, excellent recreational activities, low taxes, and cultural and ethnic diversity are among the reasons why nearly 42% of Alaska’s residents choose to make their homes in Anchorage, the state’s largest city. Nestled at the base of the Chugach Mountains along the coast of Cook Inlet in the central southern part of the state, Anchorage blends modern metropolitan living with gorgeous, rugged, unspoiled wilderness. Anchorage businesses and residents both enjoy the lowest state and local taxes in the nation and benefit from Alaska’s Permanent Fund –royalties and taxes collected from the oil industry which contribute greatly to local and state funding. In fact, most families receive more income from Alaska’s Permanent Fund investments than they pay in state and local taxes. As part of the northernmost state, Anchorage has cold, snowy winters during which residents can take advantage of more than 200 kilometers of groomed cross country ski trails and four local ski areas. City parks house facilities for ice skating, sledding and hiking. Residents can have just as much fun in the summer backpacking, horseback riding, playing golf, kayaking and rafting. There are three lakes with swim areas in and around the city. Additionally, Anchorage has some of the best trout and salmon fishing in the entire world and is one of the few cities where fish can be safely caught in the heart of downtown. Real estate is affordable, with single-family homes, condominiums and townhouses offering stunning views available at reasonable prices.
