Eagle-River is a busy community located within the city of Anchorage in south-central Alaska. It lies along the Eagle River, for which the community is named, in the Chugach Mountains. The population is about 22,000, which would make it one of Alaska's largest cities, if it were not part of the municipality of Anchorage. There have been efforts underway since 2000 to secede from the city. Eagle River is a major shopping hub for Anchorage and nearby Wasilla and Palmer. They're home to a movie theater with six screens, large big-box-type stores, coffee shops and lots of restaurants including fast food, Mexican, Italian, Indian and local cuisine. The community has also seen improvements in recent years in their medical and dental services. There are several special events in Eagle River, including the Highland Games at the end of June and a Fourth of July celebration. In July, the Bear Paw Festival is celebrated with a 5k foot race, a parade, a dog-and-owner look-alike contest, carnival games, food, rides and the crowning of Miss Bear Paw. Other activities in the area include hiking, ice climbing, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, golf, skiing, and snowmobiling. This is also one of the best places in the state to view the incredible Northern Lights, best seen in the months of September and March.

Eagle River Weather & Climate

South-central Alaska has a subarctic climate, with strong oceanic influences. This part of Alaska gets less rain, but more snow, than the southeast Panhandle region. Summers are short and cool to mild, and winters are long and cold. There are frequent, strong southeast winds, known as the Knik wind, in this area, especially in the winter. Rains are frequent in late summer, but not abundant in total amounts. The number of frost-free summer days number 101. The latitude in this region causes summer days to be very long and winter days to be very short. It is also generally very cloudy during winter. Due to the proximity to active volcanoes, ash hazards may occur and are significant, but not frequent.
