Wasilla, AK

Wasilla is a city located on the northern point of Cook Inlet in Alaska’s Matanuska-Susitna Borough. It’s less than an hour north of Anchorage and is part of the Anchorage Metropolitan Area.

According to the city’s official website, Wasilla has a population of around 9,284 as of 2015. In 1917, the city was established as a supply base for gold and coal mining and its early residents were mostly miners and farmers.

It remained unchanged until the 1970s when the completion of the George Parks Highway transformed Wasilla into an important halfway point for travelers going to and from Anchorage and Fairbanks as well as Denali National Park.
