I lived in Anchorage, Alaska from 1981 to 1996. I experienced an earthquake large enough to knock things off of the shelves at least once a month. In the 1960's an earthquake devastated the city and they had to rebuild almost everything. I talked to a siesmic expert who said that Anchorage would definately experience another huge earthquake in the future. Most people get what's called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) in the winter because of the long dark winter months. By the time I left in 1996 the city street gangs were moving in at an alarming rate. Check the internet to see how many gangs are in Anchorage, Alaska now. It's scary.
This article says nothing about the earthquakes, seasonal affective disorder and gangs. People really need to research places before moving to them. Anchorage, Alaska and all of Alaska is beautiful, with its mountains, rivers, and abundant wildlife. But everywhere has it's good and bad. In my opinion people need to be more well informed about the dangers of Alaska, as well as the beauty.
Little Rock, Ark. is not a livable city by the stretch of the imagination...
Pulaski Co., Ark. is a "DUMP" !!!
This is ridiculous. Half of these cities are college towns and if you aren't in that demographic, sucks. Only 2 of these towns don't have snow in the winter. Y'all want to see a nice place to live, come down to the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach, Al area. Its not like what most people think about the state of Al. Most of us down here are from somewhere else that just tired of driving so far after vacation was over.
You'll thank me later.
I didn't think this info was accurate, just wasn't sure. But judging from the comments, my assumptions were right. Over the years I've heard not so favorable remarks/comments about most of these cites, so I thought it strange those same cities made the list. Wait ... except for Billings, MT, always heard good things about MT until today that is.
Have lived in a LR suburb for over 30 years, retired from a job in the city and find
many good things that make LR attractive. However, many parts of town are unsafe
and rundown, parks are anywhere from risky to unsafe and schools would not be the
place I would send my kids. Have been to 49 of our 50 states and found Allen,Texas
to be a great place. Check it out. Great location,( Dallas Metro), excellent schools,
great neighborhoods, shopping centers and restaurants, moderate housing costs,
low unemployment, close to several major universities and excellent medical facilities.
