Alaska was bought from the Russians in 1867 for $7.2 million and became the 49th state on January 3, 1959. Alaska is by far the largest U.S. state in terms of its area, covering a massive 663,267 square miles (1,717,854 km2). Alaska’s coastline is larger than all of the other U.S. states coastlines combined.
With a population of 670,000, Alaska has the lowest population density in the United States. Maybe it’s the climate that puts many people off! While southern coast Alaska is actually a slightly cooler version of Seattle,the northern and inland parts of Alaska have unfavorable sub-arctic climates. In the extreme north the summer temperatures only just average above freezing. Alaska’s capital city is Juneau, which is situated within the Alaskan panhandle. The city is unreachable by land or road. The largest city is Anchorage, situated further north and west of Juneau. Alaska’s nickname is ‘The Last Frontier’. The state sport is Dog Mushing and the state flower is the Forget-Me-Not.
Alaska is the last great frontier. The way of life in this area is totally different than any other state in the United States. The temperature and day/night cycle make it important for things to be this way. With lots of snow and ice, along with long days and long nights, you will find that the people who live here, live by a different code. Moving here can be a very great educational experience for you and your whole family.
