- Dispelling the Myths about
Alaska: Fact and Fiction: A
recent survey showed America loves, but doesn't know Alaska.
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, Alaskan's 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 misperceptions, 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.

entrepreneurs in innkeeping. The Professional Association of Innkeepers International provides a wealth of information to ensure
success for new innkeepers.
- Independent Travelers get
More Depth of Experience than Cruise Passengers in Alaska. Experience Alaska like a local,
rather than a tourist with 12,000 other cruise passengers getting off the ship. Stay in bed and
breakfast, small inns and resorts so you can learn and experience the hidden gems of the area, get
the latest on new restaurants, trails and attractions, long before they show up in guidebooks.
Learn how to avoid the cruise crowds and hike the trails and do the activities that locals do.
