Ranked among the "Top 10 Best Cities to Live”, Anchorage is a majestic, family-friendly city of 300,000, flanked by the Chugach Mountains and the ocean.

Protected by the Chugach Mountains and warmed by Japanese currents in the Pacific Ocean, Anchorage’s climate is actually quite mild year-round. Spring through fall, the climate is similar to San Francisco's spring weather, with temperatures reaching into the 70s. Summer highs average 65 degrees. Winters bring on the snow with high temperatures dipping into the 20s, creating a climate very much like ski resorts in the Rocky Mountains, Canada or Europe.
There is no state income tax in Alaska and no sales tax in Anchorage.
