Alaska – The Last Frontier

Alaska is officially nicknamed, “The Last Frontier” because of its opportunities and many lightly settled regions – Alaska’s land is only 1/3 developed with cities and towns.

AK is the Two-letter or Postal Abbreviation and Alaska is the Traditional or Standard Abbreviation for the State of Alaska. It’s also been called,
the “Land of the Midnight Sun” because the sun shines nearly around the clock during Alaskan summers.
