When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
This neighborhood has wide open spaces, few people, and lots of space to stretch out. If you like locations that fit that description, you may like this neighborhood. Based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, with only 9.29 people per square mile living here, this neighborhood is less crowded than 97.4% of America. Eklutna / Peters Creek is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the
waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery.
In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood
waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation.
In addition to being coastal, Eklutna / Peters Creek is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

Native American and Spanish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 8.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have Native American ancestry and 1.3% have Spanish ancestry.
Eklutna / Peters Creek is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily

From local, to state, to federal government workers, the government can
also be a major employer. What NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed, is

shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
