MacInnes Street Neighborhoods of Anchorage, AK

The Neighborhoods of MacInnes Street

The neighborhoods of MacInnes Street are located in between Geneva Woods and Green Acres in the Tudor Area of Anchorage. They are: University Park, Tudor Park, and Lake Otis Park. Other specific development names are Harris and Winderness.

MacInnes Street itself runs from Tudor Road north to 36th Avenue just West of the popular Lake Otis and Tudor intersection.

These neighborhoods have great commuting access to 36th Avenue, Lake Otis Parkway, and Tudor Road. These neighborhoods make a short trip to the Anchorage U-Med District for work and school!  The Seward Highway is also just a few blocks away. Local schools nearby are Rogers Park Elementary School and Lake Otis Elementary School. If you would like to know what the specific boundaries are for these homes on MacInnes Street, visit the Anchorage School District School Finder Page.

The Parks of MacInnes Street

At the intersection of MacInnes and 36th Avenue is David Green Memorial Park with a grassy area for sports and playground equipment for kids. This park is currently being remodeled with new playground equipment! Between Tudor Road and the homes on Warwick South Salem Drives is University Park, a newly added city park area.

MacInnes or Macinnes?

I'm not entirely sure of the history of what this street's name was intended to be. The Municipality of Anchorage's street registry has it in all caps. I am assuming it is named after someone named MacInnes, since that seems to be an obvious Scottish or Irish name. However, most references I see have it all spelled out in lower caps as Macinnes.

7 Must Have Alaskan Luxury Home Features

7 Popular Alaskan Luxury Home Features 

Luxury doesn't always mean a big price tag. Sometimes, the simplest features add true luxury to a home. Here are some interesting Alaskan luxury homes features I have noticed.

Arctic Entry and Mud Room

Let's face it, it's cold up here and you'll need a lot of layers, even in "Summer". A luxury feature for an Alaskan home is an arctic entryway that shields the rest of the house from the cold blast of air from the front door. Once you get inside, you'll want a place to shed all those extra layers without clogging up your fancy entryway. If you have guests visiting, this stockpile of jackets, hats, scarves, boots, mitts, and warmers can get huge.

Separate Pantry and Stand Alone Freezer

Flickr CC License: jrubinic
Alaskan grocery prices are sky high. Even if you can afford a luxury home, how can you say no to buying those flats of strawberries when they are in season. You'll need some place to store your I-bought-it-on-sale hoard, so a true Alaskan luxury is a giant pantry; extra points if you can put in your own root cellar to store locally grown Alaskan potatoes and other root vegetables. Another big Alaskan kitchen luxury feature is the enormous stand alone freezer. Every family that hunts and fishes needs one of these, heck get two! One for fish and one for game! If you're buying an Alaskan home and the Bill of Sale has a separate freezer on it, you've scored!

It's Banya, Not Jacuzzi 

Unless your hot tub doubles as a time machine, the best luxury feature for an Alaskan home spa is a banya, or sauna in English. Locals here have taken up this Russian tradition with glee. What better way to get rid of the chills than baking yourself in a nice cozy cedar lined oven? Once you've been in long enough, you'll welcome a plunge in the snow!

Garage-Mahal or Flat Driveway 
Banya: Wikipedia Commons: Smarticvs

Many Alaskans leave extra early for work due to winter driving and having to dig their cars out of the snow. To avoid shoveling, buy a home with a garage! Most winters Southcentral Alaskans experience a December thaw accompanied by freezing rain on ice. Because of this, you will be thankful for buying a home with a garage or at least a flat driveway. While it may be hard to skate to your car, not having to skate downhill to your car would be better!

Southern Exposure

Who says Alaskan winters have to cause cabin fever? A true Alaskan luxury home feature is the amount of southern facing windows it has. The more the merrier! Who says you can't get a sun burn in February? With enough south facing windows, you can chase away any vitamin D deficiency!

Window Screens and Other Light Accessories

Many people think the ptarmigan is our state bird - wrong! It's actually the mosquito, we just didn't want to scare you all away. To keep these summer pests out of the house, you must get window screens or resort to choking on clouds of Pic or Buhach. While you're at it, load up those windows with some thick light blocking curtains so you can see your TV and computer screens without the glare of Alaska's Midnight Sun. You don't want to resort to being that house with the tin foil.

Smokehouse, Not Outhouse!

We've come a long way baby! No longer in need of outhouses, most modern Alaskan homes have big custom throne rooms complete with big bathtubs. The only separate "house" really needed these days is a smokehouse. Yeah, you can get yourself a Little Chief smoker and be done with it, but if you are seeking true Alaskan living, a whole smokehouse is the way to go. After all, how is a Little Chief smoker supposed to keep up with a true Alaskan fisherman?

These are the top luxury home features if you are buying a home in Alaska.

What's for lunch this school year?

Find interesting lunch ideas for your students on Pinterest (if you're not already hooked on Pinterest as it is!) Here's a pinboard someone started for bento box school lunch ideas

Follow JustOneCookbook®'s board Bento & School Lunch on Pinterest.


Need lunch containers for homemade lunches?

If you are like me and don't quite know where to begin on packing your lunches from homemade foods rather than expensive store bought foods, look through these online sources that sell lunch box containers. These are just a few I found on Google. I hope to try making better lunches this year - and not mention saving a lot of money by avoiding pre-made foods. Check out lunchboxes.com, they have old school metal lunch boxes for children and adults. (Remember the old school men's metal lunch box? They have those!) - You can even make your own custom metal lunch boxes!

Virus Season is Back!

Along with homework, our kids will be bring home viruses to share. I don't look forward to this part of the year, as last year was pretty bad in Anchorage. It seems like we caught every possible virus there is besides the bubonic plague.
    In hopes of being prepared for next years onslaught of illnesses, don't forget to stock up on items like these while back to school shopping:
  • A good working thermometer
  • Children's acetaminophen AND/OR ibuprofen (some symptoms respond better one or the other - ask a health care provider which one to take)
  • Allergy medicines if your child has allergies
  • Inhalers to keep at the school if your child has asthma
  • Cough syrups, decongestants, expectorants, etc.(Ask a health care provider which is right for your child)
  • Sore throat spray
  • Vaporub
  • Tissues
  • Frozen popsicles
  • A humidifier
  • Hot pads/Ice pads
  • Re-hydration mixes and drinks
  • Vitamins to help maintain natural immunity
  • Favorite DVDs and books for sick days
  • Favorite sick foods (i.e. chicken soup, crackers, broths, etc.)
I hope we all have an easy flu and cold season this year! Here's a link to a WebMD article on Back-to-School health.
