Moving to Alaska
There aren't many locations in the world where you can dog-sled, glacier view, pan for gold, see a volcano, river raft, experience a 20,320-foot tall mountain and enjoy an ocean cruise all in one place! Check out these other great reason why you’ll love moving to Alaska!

Alaska’s weather is pretty diverse. Southeast Alaska receives the most rainfall, with 54.4 inches annually. The interior of Alaska receives warm, sunny weather during the summer. Always dress in layers in Alaska because the weather changes very quickly. The dress code in Alaska is informal and casual. You can expect temperatures during the summer to range from 60 F to 80 F, and winter temperatures in the deep negatives to mid-20s.

Long Days in the Summer
It may take some time to get used to the average 19 hours of daylight in summer. Once you’re used to the rising and setting of the sun, make the most of the light by exploring Alaska’s unspoiled beauty. 10 p.m. is a great time to begin a hike, I hear!

The Great Outdoors
The word “great” to describe the outdoors of Alaska seems like an understatement. There are so many things to do outdoors in Alaska; you’ll have to decide exactly where to start first.

  • Hike an on Ice Age glacier
  • Take a dog sled ride
  • Kayak, raft, jet across protected coastal waters
  • Fish for world-class halibut and salmon
  • Look for bald eagles, polar bears, humpbacked whales, wolves, grizzly bears, and moose!

The People
You’ll find some of the friendliest people on earth in Alaska. Native Alaskans are always willing to lend a hand and know the terrain better than anyone. Be sure to meet some Alaskan natives to learn about Alaska’s history and what they love about living in Alaska.

No More Income Tax
Alaska is one of the few states that have done away with state income tax, all thanks to revenues from the oil pipeline.

The Northern Lights
All your friends in the lower 48 will think you’re extremely lucky to have witnessed the brilliant sky-filled colors of the Aurora Borealis.
