For those who love the great outdoors but still want access to city amenities such as shopping, dining and cultural activities, the Girdwood Alaska real estate market provides the best of both worlds. Located 38 miles southeast of Anchorage along scenic Turnagain Arm, the town of Girdwood may be best known as the gateway to Mount Alyeska, Alaska's largest ski resort. However, Girdwood has much to offer residents, from the summer Girdwood Forest Fair with its emphasis on local art and music, to the annual Spring Carnival and Slush Cup that allows Alaskans to venture out into the chilly spring air. Towering above the town, Mount Alyeska is a popular destination for skiers, rock climbers and mountain bikers, and offers a 2,300-foot tram ride for both winter sports and summer hiking.
Primarily a resort town, Girdwood is home to 1,187 year-round residents with an average income of $60,688. Due to the town's small size, the Girdwood Alaska real estate market tends to experience low inventory as a matter of course. However, those interested in purchasing Girdwood Alaska homes will enjoy a range of small-town amenities, such as a library, a post office, bars, restaurants, and cultural activities at the Girdwood Center for the Visual Arts. Girdwood's younger residents are served by the Girdwood elementary through junior high School; high school students are bussed to Anchorage to attend school. Most residents work in service industries in Girdwood or commute to jobs in Anchorage.
