  • Dispelling the Myths about Alaska: Fact and Fiction: A recent survey showed America loves, but doesn’t know Alaska.Examples:
    Alaska is NOT covered with ice and snow most of the year. In fact Juneau is in the largest temperate rainforest in the world, with average summer temperatures about 68, and winter temps about 32. And less than 5% of Alaska is covered in ice and glaciers.No, Alaskans don’t live in igloos. Most Alaskans live in regular homes like everyone in the country, often with a rugged Pacific Northwest influence in design.Yes, Juneau is the capital. Alaska is a state, not a territory, & yes, we use American money. Yes, Alaska is huge, one-fifth the size of the contiguous U.S.Yes, Alaska’s population is small at just 665,000, and Juneau is about 31,000 residents. Most residents work in offices or own their own businesses in fishing, tourism or energy development.Yes, there is more waterfront and coastline in Alaska than any other state and, in fact, more than most states combined. Yet, partly because of these misconceptions, property in Alaska is undervalued.Yes, Juneau is surrounded by scenic beauty and is easily accessible by air (2 hours from Seattle or 1.5 from Anchorage), or ferry/cruise. While some see no direct road access as weird, Juneauites and visitors see it as an advantage because there is little traffic, no pollution, nearly no serious crime, and little to spend money on or become attached to things. It is a great place to live, enjoy a good quality of life with focus on fun, relationships, recreation, nature, self-empowerment, peace, exciting adventures, art, culture, history, winter sports, midnight sun, building community and much more.I
