There are a number of party hot spots in Alaska.

For example, Palmer, Alaska has been called one of the biggest party towns in the nation. And you can see why. It has a large number of college kids, a very young population, and frankly, there’s a huge bar scene.

But is it the best city to score in? The purpose of this post is to use science and data to determine which places are the easiest you could possibly go in Alaska if you wanted to hook up with someone.

After analyzing 15 of the state’s most populous areas (over 4,000 people), we came up with this list as the 10 easiest places to get laid in the state of Alaska:

Are you trying to find love in Alaska?

You might be thinking, “Ketchikan?!” Why haven’t I gone there before?

Well if you live in Ketchikan, you’re probably already aware of the pure excitement level, based on the criteria we list below. And if you’re not already regularly hooking up there…well, then there’s nothing we can do about that.

That’s your own personal problem.

Read on below to see how we crunched the numbers and see how the places near you fared. We’ve got the complete list of the most populous cities below so you know where to go and where to avoid on your next road trip.

In order to rank the chances where you’re most likely to get laid in Alaska, we had to determine what criteria helps people hook up. It isn’t a stretch to assume that people will get frisky where there are plenty of young singles, areas where people aren’t married and with kids, and in areas with high lots of adult things to do.

So we found databases across the internet for those criteria, and it spit out the answer. Like magic.

How we crunched the numbers for getting laid

We know we are answering a bar topic with this one, but we still try to be scientific about it. With that in mind we used the most recent 2013-2017 American Community Survey Census data produced for the state of Alaska. And we paired it up with data from OpenStreetMap contributors, ODbL 1.0 and colleges from IPEDS.

Can’t really get any better data than that.

We paid particular attention to:

  • Population density
  • % of population that’s female (More females than males)
  • % of unmarried people in each city
  • % of households with kids in each city
  • Colleges per capita
  • Bars per capita

We then gave each city a “Chance To Get Laid Score”.

The higher the score, the better the city is for getting lucky. We also limited our results to cities with populations over 4,000 people. For Alaska, that meant a total of 15 cities.
