Lol. I love Bethel, ME; have you been over there Warpt? If not, you ought to add that one to your list of places to visit. Right over the border from the NH White Mountains. I can't decide if I like the Bethel area better, or the Millinocket area and points north, near Baxter Peak. Pretty much all of Maine is just unbelievably awesome though. It's on my short list of places if for some reason I can't do Alaska, like if my parents got sick and I needed to stay in the lower 48 or something. Pretty much Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont (maybe), Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho. Oh, and the Cascades in Washington.

Driving on Wasilla is hell on wheels. Same goes for the commute to Anchorage. Once you're out of the "town" of Wasilla, if you can call it anything more then one long strip mall, it's beautiful. Palmer is a much nicer place and town.
If you like the outdoors, hiking, snow machining, and so on, the Valley is great. If you like shopping and walking around town, forget it. Although, Wasilla does have anything you may "need".

Anthony's Pier 4. Jimmy's Harbor Side Continental; and I'm sure there are dozens more

I used to always to look forward getting all dressed up going out to eat back east. It always a fun time. The manner in which they wait on you is totally different

please forgive my ignorance, Alaskans...i am just trying to learn about your wonderful state. i dont know much about Alaska-my first visit was this summer for halibut and salmon fishing on the Kenai. i drove thru Palmer and Wasilla, stopped for breakfast at the Valley Hotel and this was the extent of my exposure to the area.
if Wasilla is so bad, why would Sara Palin choose to live there? does she live in an especially nice area outside of Wasilla? the house on the reality show sure looked nice.
the hospital looked very nice

The hospital is between Wasilla and Palmer but the address is officially Palmer.

Sarah Palin lives on Lake Lucille. A lot on Lake Lucille is worth more than $100K. There are some shacks on the lake that have been there for years but most of the homes have been upgraded.

Most of the lakefront lots in the Wasilla-Palmer area are worth around that or more.
