Alaska Apartments for Rent
Alaska has a population of just over 660,000. Its capital, Juneau, is a good place to start to look for apartments for rent, although this city can only be accessed by plane or ferry; other large cities in the state that are somewhat more accessible (thanks to a highly developed marine highway system which serves 30 Alaskan ports and covers 3,500 miles) include Anchorage and Fairbanks.
Alaska joined the Union in 1959, and has the largest landmass of any state. The state celebrates an annual WhaleFest in Sitka, and is also famous for the Iditarod dogsledding race, held to recreate a dogsledding voyage made from Nome to the western Bering Sea Coast in year to save lives in Nome after a diphtheria epidemic exhausted local supplies of serum. Perks of living in Alaska? Seafood is cheap and wild-caught (visit Alaskaseafood.org to learn more about the seafood industry in the state), and game meat is abundant and out of the ordinary, consisting of moose and reindeer rather than just plain beef. The World Ice Art Championships are also held in Alaska, which is one-fifth the size of the continental U.S.
Nature and wildlife enthusiasts and mountaineering aficionados won't have to look far to find reasons to love Alaska: the state has 17 of the nation's 20 highest peaks, including legendary Mt. McKinley (TravelAlaska.com). Other impressive statistics? The state has 32 species of carnivores (more than any other state) and 15 national parks, preserves and monuments, according to the National Park Service; it also has 3 million lakes, over 3,000 rivers, and according to the state's Department of Fish and Game has the nation's largest known concentration of bald eagles, which gathers near the town of Haines between October and January to feed on salmon swimming upstream in the Chilkat River.
