Anchorage's population is approaching 300,000 and offers most amenities of a large city, while maintaining its small town feel. Anchorage is home to a busy international airport and is a rich cultural hub of activity. As the saying goes, "Anchorage is the closest city to Alaska". Come experience our Big Wild Life!
