POPULATION IN ALASKA

The residential population of Alaska is still below one million people, with approximately 740,000 people living here year-round.  With a size of over 663 million square miles, the average number of  people per square mile is only 1.2.  That’s alot of breathing room!!   Alaska is the largest state, more than twice the size of Texas, the second largest state, but yet is one of the least populated.  cropped-header3.jpg

However, the number of visitors to Alaska is steadily increasing, with 1.78 visitors recorded for the summer of 2015.  Forty-three percent of the visitors are ground travelers, which means that the major roads and highways can get very busy.  Some of the most popular attractions include Denali National Park, Kenai-Fjords National Park, The Kenai Peninsula, Seward and the Arctic Circle.mt. mckinley

Despite the increase in people and traffic, there is plenty of space and plenty of opportunity to experience the expansiveness of Alaska.  Just a short hike along a trail in almost any area can give you the feeling of having this place all to yourself. me molly rein14210108 So come visit us this summer and enjoy the space!
