A Girl's Guide to Alaska
By Marry Mint on March 28, 2014
When we found out we were moving to Alaska we were excited for the adventure! I immediately started researching homes, shopping and various activities for us to do during our time in Alaska.
Kyle became more and more excited each day. He would come home and tell me all about the hunting, fishing, hiking and camping that we were going to be able to do. ::crickets:: (Although, I do enjoy hiking and even a little fishing.)
One the other hand, I researched and researched only learning the things Alaska did not have. Panera, Chipotle, T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, Chick-fil-A, etc. The list is way too long... Don't get me wrong, I was excited for this once in a lifetime opportunity, but from a girly perspective; it didn't look good.
Now that we've been here a little over a year, I think I can make a few recommendations for those of you who may find yourself in the Last Frontier.
For reference: We live in the Mat-Su Valley and Kyle works in Anchorage.
*No need to panic, there are two Target stores and a Sephora in the area. We even have Starbucks, but I totally encourage you to try the little coffee shacks you see EVERYWHERE!
grab a bite to eat :
Snow City Cafe = Downtown Anchorage brunch spot. A local favorite!
Sakura Sushi = Located in Wasilla. The best sushi we've found so far!
Humdinger's Pizza = Located in Palmer. No delivery option. Tons options and a favorite among locals. This is our go to pizza joint!
