Live. Work. Play.?
We have a vision for our future. By 2025, Anchorage is the #1 city in America in which to Live. Work. & Play.
Anchorage is a young and growing city for all ages where you can live close to work, make a competitive salary and have a plethora of options for entertainment and outdoor activities. There are many things that make this city an amazing place to call home; however, to be the #1 city in the nation to live, work, and play we must continually improve and invest.
As Alaskans, we are proud of our state. We know that as the largest state in the nation we have more to offer. Our mountains are bigger, our trails are longer and we share one common idea — we love where we live.
