Anchorage, Alaska

Anchorage is Alaska’s largest and most diverse city with a population of nearly 300,000, representing 40 percent of the state’s population. Long considered the “air crossroads of the world” Anchorage lies within 9.5 hours by air of nearly 90% of the industrialized world. Ted Stevens International Airport is the third busiest cargo airport in the world and home to a major FedEx hub. Anchorage has been named an All-America City four times by the National Civic League. Though the climate is classified as subarctic, temperatures are moderated by Cook Inlet and the influence of the Gulf of Alaska. With more than 19 hours of daylight at the height of summer, Anchorage visitors and residents stay active throughout the year enjoying more than 250 miles of walking, biking and skiing trails. The city is proud of its diversity with more than 100 languages spoken in the Anchorage school district. Downtown Anchorage is the hub of Alaska’s cultural offerings, including the Anchorage Museum and the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts. Among the most pressing issues impacting the vitality of downtown include; a migration of businesses to the mid-town area; lack of urban living space for those who might choose to reside downtown; a perception that downtown parking is both limited and expensive; and the concentration of Anchorage’s public inebriates and homeless populations.
