Known for breathtaking scenery, majestic wilderness, and unbeatable access to all kinds of incredible wildlife, Alaska is one of the most unique states in the country. In addition to being the home of 3 million lakes, 29 volcanoes, and 100,000 glaciers, The Land of the Midnight Sun is also home to a number of truly incredible local businesses — from acupuncturists to window cleaners — that work to serve their communities and make the world a better place.
Top Rated Local® is here to recognize the many local businesses that work to make Alaska such a phenomenal place to live and visit. There are so many amazing businesses that serve the people of Alaska, but only the best of the best have made it on our list of Top Rated Local award winners for 2020. Today, we’re ecstatic to announce our 2020 award winners in Alaska.
To calculate our 2020 winners, we’ve looked at each business’ Rating Score™, which is determined by the total number of verified review sites the business is listed on, the total number of ratings/reviews the business has on those review sites, and the business’ average overall star rating. The more review sites a business is listed on, the more reviews or ratings a business has, and the higher the average star rating, the higher the Rating Score will be, with the highest being 100.00.
There are a large number of businesses that work hard to serve the people of Alaska and provide them with everything they need to thrive, and this year, we’ve identified 322 total businesses that have made the cut. These one-of-a-kind, local businesses have clearly made an impact on the customers and clients they serve each and every day, as evidenced by their impressive average Rating Score of 95.79 and average star rating of 4.87.
