Wasilla Reviews

Write a review about Wasilla Tell people what you like or don't like about Wasilla…
don't live here 0.5 rating By Anonymous ( Feb 26, 2019) Could be the worse place on the planet to live. Horrible winters, wet summers, and only two seasons. Avoid this place at all costs. The living conditions are awful, and the population of losers who live here are all depressed alcoholics, and meth heads. Most the people live here ...Read More because it's the end of the road on the Alaska Highway, and their junk cars cannot go any further. If it wasn't for the PFD, free money to live here, this place would be a desolate hell hole. Oh wait, it is regardless. Let's just say this, I'm out of here ASAP. Read Less
