Mount Roberts Tramway (Juneau, AK).

Juneau has so many fun things to do all year round. Whether you’re an adventurous, outdoor person, or shopping and seeing a play indoors is more your style, there’s  always something to go out and do! Since it’s currently winter, lets focus on some of the fun things you can do during these cold months.

1. Eaglecrest Ski Area: Head up to the mountain for some down-hill skiing, snowboarding or cross-country skiing. This is a great family activity and if you’re not feeling up to skiing or snowboarding, they have a great lodge to sit and sip hot coco while the kids burn off some energy!

2. Heli-Skiing: If you’re a little more of an adrenaline junky,  you can take it to the next level by taking a short helicopter ride and ski or snowboard where no one else has! You can do a half-day, full-day or even several day package trips. For more information on heli-skiing, go to http://alaskapowder.com/ .

4 Questions to Ask About the Neighborhood

neighborhood

#1. Is the economy stable? Be sure the property values and average income in the area are rising or at least staying stable. 

#2. Is it a good investment? Ask your realtor about price appreciation in the neighborhood you’re interested in. They may not be able to predict the future, but they can give you a good idea based off of the neighborhood’s history and if a home’s value in the area will grow. 

#3. Do you like what you see? How does it feel to you? Are the houses in the are maintained nicely? Do the neighbors seem pleasant? Pick a nice day and walk around the neighborhood/s you’re interested in to get a feel for how it would be like to live there. 

#4. How’s the school district? If you have children, this is probably one of your number one concerns. Visit the schools in the neighborhood and ask for feedback from friends, family or coworkers who have children enrolled in those schools. A good school district is also great for your resale value!
