17 Tiny Towns In Alaska Where Everyone Knows Your Name

Vast in size and largely undeveloped, the 49th state is filled with rural towns and villages that have less than 500 to 1000 year-round residents. Many with remote locations and limited access, these areas throughout the last frontier are scarcely inhabited. Living in the wild, away from the hustle and bustle, is a way of life for many Alaskans – but it definitely comes with some sacrifices. For starters, you can’t walk out your front door without running into someone that you know. Here are 17 tiny towns in Alaska where everyone knows your name.

From remote islands and tiny villages to areas only accessible by plane, train or boat – Alaska is filled with tiny towns where everyone knows your name. Getting away from the “rat race” and living off the land is a lifestyle that many Alaskans strive to embody. Even if it means that you can’t go to gas station or grocery store without bumping into a handful of people you know. Have you ever been to any of these tiny towns or others throughout Alaska?
