Small Alaskan town located in the Matanuska Valley, approximately 50 miles north of Anchorage. People from Palmer and the surrounding areas have been refered to as "Valley Trash."
Let's drive to Palmer.
The greatest place ever. Period. Home of the Alaska State Fair, lots of weed, fuck-ups galore, Kwik Mart ice cream (after the remodeling), and Pioneer Pizza. Thank the Lord for Pioneer Pizza.
Dude, let's go to Palmer and get stoned.
Little crappy town with waay too many cops. Everyone and their mom has slept with everyone and their dad. Known as the sister town to Wasilla but those meth-heads don't have shit on us. Home to the Palmer High Moose, Colony Highschool and Valley Pathways, all schools are known for their high drug use normally related to weed. But what can I say there's nothing else interesting to do here besides eat at Taco Bell, smoke some dooby and party anywhere and everywhere you fucking can.
Ha oh shit I realized I've slept with everyone hot in Palmer already...
Fairbanks is a city in Alaska, pretty far North. Its about 300 miles away from Palmer, Alaska. Fairbanks is a mining town, most of the jobs are outdoor, mining, or retail. While the job market is pretty good during the economic decline, Fairbanks fails at the social aspect. You will find more felons in Fairbanks than any other city in Alaska. Most of the people were either born there and have never left, or were brought in by people that were already there. Many people go to Fairbanks for a period of time to attend UAF, one of the BEST campuses that University of Alaska has to offer. The marijuana is expensive, $50 for an eighth! Don't worry though, if you know where to get it, its good, and unless you have a bad connection, its 3.5 every time.more...
The major downside to Fairbanks:
There is NOTHING to do for people in their twenties.
Most places have bad water (lots of iron, can't shower in it or drink it).
Most of the people there are set in their ways and spend most of their time drinking away their sorrows.
Unless they aren't FROM Fairbanks, most people are pretty introverted, and it takes them awhile to warm up to new people enough to quit scowling.
It gets really, REALLY cold there. I mean, frostbite in seconds during the winter.
If you're going to visit during the summer and you like hot weather, its a great place to visit. Living there is NOT something one should do unless they have warrants out and feel like hiding.
Largest city in the state of Alaska. Population of 282,813 in Anchorage city limits, and a metro area of 359,180 (source: Wikipedia.com). Where the famous Iditarod race is showcased every year downtown right before the actual race, which begins in Wasilla and goes to Nome, Alaska. Growing at a very impressive pace. When any chain store or business comes up here, Anchorage sales are in the top 5% of the country for quite a while, word to the aspiring franchisse-entrepreneuer.more...
The summer population is much higher, because from mid-May all the way to late August, the sun stays up almost the entire day and night. The sun is up all day on "summer solstice"; the sun sets right above the horizon but never goes all the way down.
Being born and raised (until age 19) in Anchorage, the people are as follows: the majority of people are white, followed by a large coastal Asian population, most being Filipino (from the Phillipines) or other types of Asian/Pacific Islanders.
Southside Anchorage: predominated by white people, most from families with at least middle class to upper-class range net worths. Almost 50% of the teenagers smoke marijuana, and so do quite a few of their parents. There are a lot of "wiggers" here, who listen to and live like they are a part of the hip-hop culture. A lot more gun-toting Caucasian young men who use their parents money to push hard drugs like cocaine and ecstasy. There are good people too though. Most people drive very nice trucks with work...
The biggest little place on earth. Home to the crystal meth capital of alaska & sarah palin. named after eskimo cheif who enjoyed smoking the green
whoa! it's wasilla!
The Matanuska Valley, located in South Central Alaska, is one of two huge valleys. Susitna being the other which form the Matanuska-Susitna Borough. Both valleys were formed by three seperate glaciers grinding down and carving through the mountains over millions of years.
The extremely nutrient-rich, soils in this area are due to the volcanic activity combining with the glacier's deep churning of the soil. Between the rich soil and the long days of sunlight in the summer, the area has become world renown for it's gigantic vegetables and it's famed cannabis.
Although, The Matanuska and Susitna valleys combine to form one area. The two valleys are often thought of as being seperate, Matanuska being developed mainly for farming which isn't the case with Susitna.
Palmer, which is were the Alaska State Fair is held, is often thought of as being the official center and the Gem of the Matanuska Valley.
Matanuska Valley is were things are grown big, green, and tall
