Getting Oriented

South Central is the epicenter of Alaska's population and commerce. The Mat-Su Valley, just 15 miles north of Anchorage, is the fastest-growing region in America. South Central is populated for a reason: the entire region is rich with awe-inspiring natural attractions and superb recreational opportunities. Geographical features include four mountain ranges, three national parks, the country's second-largest national forest, and more glaciers, rivers, and lakes than one person could visit in a lifetime.
