Alaska is one of the United States' true cultural treasures. Most residents of Alaska were born outside the state, and when they came to Alaska they brought their own traditions and desires.
Quirky and unique, Alaska is a place for lovers of the outdoors, nature, wildlife, and fishing. The state has more than three million lakes, three thousand rivers, and hundreds of miles of ocean shoreline. There are thousands of acres of virtually uninhabited land, and the highest mountain in North America, Mt. McKinley.
When planning retirement, Alaska is suited for those who enjoy cold weather, lush forests and snow-capped mountains.
