Big Apple of the north
The Community " Anchorage, AK
Locals like to say that Anchorage is only 30 minutes from Alaska:
wedged between 5000ft peaks and an inlet filled with salmon and
whales, the Big Apple of the north is unlike any other city.
At first glance the traffic, strip malls and suburban sprawl can
feel off-putting. But inside those strip malls are top-notch
restaurants serving fresh seafood and locally grown produce, and
the two roads that lead in and out of town spool right into some of
the most majestic wilderness in the world. This is a city where
bears are seen wandering bike paths, moose munch on neighborhood
gardens, and locals pull salmon from a creek within blocks of
hotels and office buildings.
