I'm moving to Anchorage this summer and I was needing any information that anyone has. I'm moving up there in may as soon as school lets out and am planning on working all summer. Where is a good place for college aged people to work? Plus any information on furnished apartments and just work in general would help tremendously.

Default moving there, too

Hello,
My husband & I are moving to Anchorage this summer, too. We're leaving in July. Are you @ WKU? I'm @ MTSU. It's going to be a long drive! We are looking for a furnished apartment also. So far, I've found info on these properties: The Club, Alpine Meadows, The Outlook, 42nd Place Apartments.

Good luck!

Your best bet for finding apartment rentals is probably the paper - adncom, or, you can find them through property management brokers directly (let me know if you'd like recommendations).

If you plan to live here long term, you should seriously consider getting a job that pays at least $10 per hour to start and perhaps a room-mate as cost of living here is Very High.

Hope that helps

I really hope you have all looked into the cost of living and availability of affordable housing. It is a very expensive, tight market.

We watched a documentary a good few years ago on a freak occurrence of Polar Bears gathering in Barrow, Alaska. And now we would like to travel to Kodiak, Alaska. Are there alot of problems with Grizzly and Polar Bears where some of you live?

Thank you!

I was planing on visiting Alaska in winter 2008-09. I was wondering what should I wear? I remember I used to live in New England a long time ago. Once I went to mid Canada in the winter. It was so cold. I came from Florida. I ended up very uncomfotable because it was so cold I was wearing like 5 sweaters and 3 coats.

Layers. Coming from Florida you might consider long johns, sweatshirt, down jacket, a good warm hat, good thick gloves, maybe some snow pants and don't skimp on wonter boots. They can be spendy but get the good ones. Or some bunny boots. Maybe a face mask if your planning on being out in the cold playing, not just walking to and from your car.
