This municipality surely lives up to its motto. Not only does it boast the deep water Port of Anchorage, a busy and revenue-producing industry, its scenery is to die for. On the other hand, what about winter sunlight (or lack thereof)? Everyone is, sometimes painfully, aware of its effects on their mental health.
Then again, “Why are people willing to pay so much to live in Anchorage? Perhaps it has something to do with the city’s unemployment rate of just 5.5 percent, average summer temperature of 56 degrees, or maybe, just maybe, it’s the fact that there is no sales tax here, where in some places in the state, it’s 7.5 percent. That seems reason enough to pay a little extra for real estate, don’t you think? Fun fact: Did you know that Anchorage is the northernmost city in the U.S.”? (Excerpted from “These are the 10 Best Cities in Alaska by Natalie Grigson, Movoto Blog)
“Because of Anchorage’s latitude, summer days are very long and winter daylight hours are very short. Anchorage is often cloudy during the winter, which decreases the amount of sunlight experienced by residents”.
