We live in Anchorage.
I came to Alaska 9 years ago on vacation for five days.........loved
it....returned home and made plans to quit my job and move to Alaska
permanently. I have now been here over 8 years.
There are lots of great places to buy land, have a cabin etc. It really
depends on your goals, likes, dislikes, etc. A great website to visit is
This will give you a great idea of what is
available. In Anchorage it is currently a SELLERS market.
There are lots of lakes and rivers etc. Your husband should have no problem
finding a fishing hole close to wherever you end up buying. When we bought
our house we were looking for water and fishing too....which in Anchorage is
a little more difficult but still obtainable.
