Stroll Down Main Street
With only 876 full-time residents, Talkeetna is exactly what many people envision as a picturesque small-town Alaska community. Packed with charm and seasoned with history, a hand-hewn sign reading "Welcome to Beautiful Downtown Talkeetna” welcomes vistors at Main Street. Although the entire downtown is only two square blocks, between chatting with the locals and visiting adorable “mom-n-pop” shops, it’s easy to lose track of time on Main Street. Many residents still live in log cabins and the entire city only has one parking meter. Wander through the gift shops and peruse art, jewelry and other Alaska-made treasures. Experience Talkeetna’s rustic charm at Nagley’s General Store. Founded in 1912, it has welcomed fur trappers and gold miners and been home to many pet cats. Talk to the store clerks to learn about how Stubbs the calico cat became Talkeetna’s longest serving mayor.
