About the Area

Alaska offers financial, cultural and recreational opportunities beyond compare. There is no state income or sales tax; in fact the state pays every Alaskan a yearly dividend from oil revenues!

Valdez is known locally as the Switzerland of Alaska thanks to the towering peaks that frame the area. It is more widely known for its critical deep-water port where oil tankers pick up Alaska crude and supply ships bring goods bound for Interior Alaska. Valdez is also home to a major commercial fishing fleet. About 4,350 year-round residents keep this busy, beautiful place buzzing. Valdezans tend to spend their off time enjoying their stunningly beautiful surroundings. Winter draws snow junkies for some of the best heli-skiing in the world, and those preferring a gentler pace have miles of outstanding cross country and snowshoeing trails. Scenes from The Sound of Music could have been filmed in the hills above Valdez, where the snow gives way to lush summer grasses and berries in this temperate coastal zone. Meanwhile, in town, there’s a swimming pool, climbing wall and racquetball courts, as well as playgrounds, a library and museums.
