It's not the best place to live, but there are worse places, especially in Alaska. The neighbors are friendly, but don't talk much. The atmosphere is genuine, however, there are a few exceptions. The education is getting worse though, with the government's habit of cutting expenses they don't need to cut. With the direction this next election is going, it's hard to say whether or not life will get worse or better, but from Alaska's standpoint, barely anyone have good intentions for us.

While Alaska is the number one state in the nation for domestic violence, they also include the villages from the bush. The bush and Anchorage are two very different places. We may have more street crime, but they have more domestic issues. The police here are responsive, and the State Troopers do what they can.
I love the food options in this area! The best pizza place in anchorage is just a couple blocks away, and if I'm not in the mood for pizza there are still several places nearby.
