Just curious as to what you all think the most liberal town in this largely conservative state is.

I would agree with that, plus University West in Fairbanks.

Talkeetna. Ester. But then "liberal" tends to have a different meaning in Alaska than in most parts of the -48. You won't find an enclave of urban liberal types anywhere outside of newcomers in Anchorage and perhaps Juneau.

What about Homer, I've heard that's pretty hippy-ish

Homer is very "arty". Pretty cool place, really. Underneath that though...it's as red as can be.

Like Met said, Talketna is pretty liberal as is Halibut Cove & Ester would be the two I would think would be up there. Course Anchorage's city council is pretty far left.. Or maybe just plain nuts!
