Life and living in Anchorage, a.k.a., The City of Lights and Flowers
When you move to Anchorage from anywhere in the lower 48 US states, you can expect the same basic services and amenities as you would find in any major American city. And if Juneau, being the capital city, is Alaska’s political center, the Anchorage is without a doubt its cultural center.
Perhaps one of the biggest draws in Anchorage for new residents is its sales tax rate, which is 0% (one of only a handful of US cities that has no sales tax). So while some commodities may cost more off the shelf, zero sales tax tends to make that an even exchange.
More people live in Anchorage than any other part of Alaska (in fact, approximately 40% of Alaska’s population call Anchorage home). Living in Anchorage also means living among Alaska’s natural splendor. Whether you’re living in Rabbit Creek, Hillside, or downtown Anchorage, you’re sure to see your fair share of moose, bear, Dall sheep, and more.
There is a wealth of arts and cultural attractions in Alaska, some from the modern age and many, many more dating back to Alaska’s first people, its indigenous population, all of which are sure to educate, entertain, and enlighten visitors and residents of all ages and backgrounds.
Living in the City of Lights and Flowers means enjoying the breathtaking natural views and clean air and water of the countryside amidst the convenience of a modern American city. There’s nothing quite like it.
