While housing prices continue to rebound and general goods and services continue to rise, it feels like affordable living could be a thing of the past. Luckily, there are still some cities in Alaska that qualify as affordable. Using science and data, AreaVibes has compiled a list of the most affordable places to live in Alaska. These cities have the lowest cost of living in all of Alaska.

Listed above are the most affordable places to live in Alaska with a population of more than 5,000 people.
