Tenakee Springs is so unique that some folks prefer that it stay undiscovered. The town feels rural and close-knit. Since there are no cars, people walk or bike everywhere. It’s artsy, hippie-ish, cool, and takes effort to get to. There’s no other place like it.
People look out for each other. Kids grow up with the freedom to run and play, knowing they can get help or advice from any number of community members. (No need to say “Watch out for cars!”) It’s a magical childhood.
People who can create their own entertainment love it here. The quiet beauty of Tenakee, its hot springs, and its spectacular fishing and wildlife are natural draws for visitors. And when they stay long enough, they want to come back again and again.
