I love Anchorage, you never know what you will find next. Bears in your yard, moose in your garden, friendly neighbors, and very interesting people. Overall, I think that most Alaskans are very friendly, we love the outdoors, the snow, the mountains. And, if you ever want to get away, I live five minutes from a forest on foot (It's called the coastal trail, we have a trail going through the city for bikers/walkers, and it is a pretty good sized forest that goes throughout the city, great way to get around). Furthermore, nature is right on your doorstep, 45 minutes and you will reach the forests that you can enter and get lost in. It is amazing to live in a place that is always surprising you, always changing, and is always amazing, at its best and at its worst.

Housing is tricky, in Alaska the cost of living is higher and that is particularly true in housing. The rough places to live are Mountain View (although I have heard it is improving), and Fairview, which both happen to be cheaper houses. There are a lot of nice neighborhoods to live in outside of that area, especially some middle class housing in neighborhoods that stretch a few miles around Providence Hospital and UAA. I have not seen any vacant properties, but overall housing is costly, but if you can get into a better neighborhood it is really nice.
The area is patrolled by police often. The roads are plowed not that often during the winter time. That is something I would like to see improve. The neighborhood is filled with people who walk their dogs and run in the morning and at night. It is close to several stores and is in walking distance to different schools. Great community and events happen their.
