Depends on the towns. Riding in the larger cities like Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau to name a few, no 4-wheelin in city limits. Laws differ from one small town to the next. I have seen 4-wheelers in many small towns up here. Not sure if they were legit or not though.
There are a lot of areas in the summer that you can go 4-wheeling in. Your best bet is to contact the Alaska department of fish and game and they could tell you the info you need or where to go to get it from.

I live in fairbanks and just barely survived my second winter here, and its not even over yet. Let me tell you, it is very difficult and if i didnt have my fiance (who is an alaskan lifer) here to pull me through the 8 months of snow and dark i dont know what i would do. However, I also stayed here all last summer by myself and while some people love the daylight all the time, i fricken hated it, i need my night time to sleep, so i felt exahusted all summer. In the end though, i really do like it here, its just going to take some getting use to, but its so beautiful and has so much to offer. And the University of Alaska Fairbanks isnt bad at all, Iloveit.

The acronym PFD means PERMANENT Fund Dividend. The $3246 consisted of the PFD plus additional funds authorized by then-governer Sarah Palin. The PFD normally averages around $1000-$1500 per person per year. It isn't taxed when distributed so you take a hit when you file your federal taxes because it is considered as income. To receive it you have to be an Alaska resident and with a few exceptions you have to prove that you physically resided in the state for the entire preceeding year.

Well, the first thing to do is to see if there is work here for you that you can do. Our economy is a bit tight for jobs.
See, getting here is no problem if you have $$$ for traveling expenses. Unless you have a load of $$$ to get a house with, you should Google "apartments for rent in Anchorage" or Fairbanks, etc. In Anchorage for a 3 bedroom you're looking at about $1200 and more on average and that doesn't include electric and other utilities.
Google "jobs in Alaska" and see what there is would be your smart move.

Winter time...any snow sport/activity you can think of to do.
Summer time...any warm weather outdoor sport activity you can think of. Like growing things in the summer, 18 hours of light.
Like driving to no where in particular? Great state for it.
Like parties? This state can party, plenty of bars and clubs and after hour clubs.

well now thank you for that fine forensic analysis there but I live in a state that is ranked no 1 in america for that kind of stuff, which is kentucky , have you ever visited there ?
hahaha that's funny that I go looking on this forum and find another Corbinite...Yep, Kentucky is one of the #1 drug states with the Florida pipeline and all the meth-heads in the area, plus is the #1 pot growing state of all time. Get rid of the meth-heads and decriminalize pot and this place would be a dream come true!
