Alaska Nick Name
The Last Frontier
The nickname of Alaska is "The Last Frontier".

Alaska, admitted as the 49th state to the union is thought of as "America's Last Frontier" because of its distance from the lower 48 states and because of its rugged landscape and climate. This remote and rugged perception is evidenced by the fact that only about 1/3 of the state has been organized into political units; 13 boroughs (similar to counties) are defined.

Other nicknames of Alaska:

  • The Land of the Midnight Sun
  • Seward's Folly
  • Seward's Ice Box
