They are both about equal because they both have a highway leaving them.

I work both areas, I personally like Palmer better but there are good things about each. Palmer is less crowded but that makes it harder to find property.

Wasilla has a lot more property available and is closer to shopping if that's important.

If you are into horses you will likely want to be on the edge of each where you can get onto horse riding areas easily without trailering.

Palmer has a "downtown", Wasilla doesn't.
Palmer has less traffic then Wasilla.
Palmer is a bit closer to mountains then Wasilla.
Wasilla does have more shopping, all in strip malls.

I am from Arizona and don't know much about Palmer/Wasilla. Is it possible to grow apples or other tree fruits up that way?

A handful of apple and crabapple varieties will grow there. I believe chokecherries can be grown as well. Might be some others too.

Why would you want to do that when you can just pick it in the grocery store? All three grocery stores I go to in Anchorage have plenty of fresh fruit.

They probably also have plenty of meat, so why would anyone bother fishing or hunting? Just buy it at the store, right?
