There IS no place like Nome!

My son and mom have chosen Nome, Alaska as their home, and I can see why. If I ever move from Washington State I will make Nome my home too. Such a small, friendly community! You are very isolated, but at the same time, feel like you are part of something very well pulled together. A "community" that has it's own way of operating. Everybody walks everywhere, or takes a taxi for $3. Adverse weather fazes no one. They just plod on. I felt like I was in a Stephen King novel! I loved the place!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:you can literally walk everywhere!
  • Cons:no theatres, or "high class, expensive" places.
  • In a nutshell:For the outdoorsy, down to earth traveler that isn't afraid of wind, dirt and/or cold. Gold panning, hunting, wonderful wildlife!

    I'm sure you know this by now, but there is a movie theater now, in the Subway restaurant. It is called Gold Coast Cinemas, and they show one or two movies a week.
