Welcome to Talkeetna
Talkeetna is a small tourist town in Alaska within the Matanuska-Susitna Borough. It is a quirky place that once elected a cat named Stubbs to serve as mayor. Some claim the town was the inspiration for the fictional town of Cicely, the setting of the TV show “Northern Exposure.” It's located north of Anchorage, with a population of about 1,000 as of 2020. The founding of this town began when miners went to the Susitna River in 1896 to search for gold. The folk in Talkeetna built a riverboat steamer station in 1910, which supplied the miners and trappers that live in the nearby mining camps. The town's population rose to more than 1,000 during World War 1 and then dropped after the completion of the Alaska Railroad.
Talkeetna's main draw for tourists is its charming Main Street and that it serves as a great base for accessing Denali by air, with many companies offering flightseeing experiences of the enormous mountain. Denali is a mountain with a summit elevation of around 20,000 feet above sea level, making it North America's highest peak and a popular challenge for mountain climbers.
Talkeetna has many restaurants, art galleries, and historic buildings. Such historic landmarks include Nagley's Store, dating back to 1921, Fairview Inn, founded in 1923, and Talkeetna Roadhouse, constructed in 1917, serving as a popular destination for miners and prospectors. Other outdoor recreation includes fishing, which one can do in the nearby Montana Creek. The creek is a popular migratory destination for various fish species, including salmon.
