Many people in the Lower 48 have dreamed of not just vacationing in the area, but of moving here. Alaska brings images of vast open spaces, majestic mountains, unlimited outdoor activities and adventure. Relocating to cities within the Lower 48 is often based on improved employment opportunities, but moving to Wasilla is more often driven by an attraction to our lifestyle opportunities.
A progressive community in a spectacular natural setting, Wasilla offers the best of Alaska. A thriving crossroads with a booming economy, this rapidly growing city is the heart of a diverse and dynamic region. Wasilla is the commercial and retail center for the Matanuska-Susitna Borough in Southcentral Alaska. The area is considered Alaska’s breadbasket because it is the state’s major agricultural region. The area is nicknamed the Mat-Su Valley, and Alaskans affectionately refer to it as the Mat-Su or the Valley.
In Alaska terms, the size of Wasilla is just right – large enough for having metropolitan amenities and a blossoming growth center for business, yet small enough for preserving the charm, security and familiarity of small-town living. The active population enjoys affordable land and housing, unparalleled recreation, a thriving economy, and a responsive local government committed to assisting responsible development.
