    one of our stops on our alaska cruise on princess. great shopping, and we got to see so much wildlife, all over the freeway's ledge. WHAT! people and animals living in harmony? We got to see a momma bear and a baby bear, some totem poles, bald eagles, deer, and a heckuva lot of salmon, stereotypically swimming upstream.

    I stopped in Juneau as part of an Inside Passage cruise. After a lunch at the Red Dog Saloon, I took a van tour of the city and the Mendenhall Glacier and really enjoyed it.

    We visited Juneau as the first port in our Alaska Inner Passage cruise. As we approached the city, my first reaction was "Where is the rest of it"? I was expecting a state capitol to offer more....Maybe at least one tall building?
    Although I would not make a special trip to Juneau, it is fine as part of a larger tour. The downtown is walkable and offers signage teaching you about history of the area. Juneau is near the famous Mendenhall Glacier, also included in popular Alaska cruises.

    Similar to the way, Maui once stole my heart - now Juneau beckons. I love the people I've met there, and oh, the wildlife. I never believed I was meant to see whales until I went whale watching with Captain Jack. But all the whale watching boats share info, so you can't go wrong in Juneau. I'm not sure I could handle Juneau in the winter, but I love it in the summer. Don't miss hiking around Mendenhall Glacier and on Mount Roberts.

    Juneau is a great small Alaskan city. I found the trick to really enjoying Juneau is by avoiding the tourist traps, hanging where the locals hang, and getting outside the city. There is some great hiking in the forest surrounding Juneau, and Mendenhall Glacier is a must see!

Description

Alaska’s capital city of Juneau is quite the unique location as far as major Alaskan cities are concerned. This expansive city with a population of around thirty thousand is spread out over a wide region of hard to traverse mountains and valleys. The two main sections --Downtown and the Valley-- are roughly fifteen minutes apart, so be sure to be ready to catch a ride when traveling within this capital city. In fact, getting into Juneau by car is not even an option because of the exceptionally rugged terrain. Access is limited to those traveling by boat or plane. Visitors who do make it to Juneau will tell you that this city is similar to a colder version of Seattle. With over fifty inches of rainfall averaged yearly, it’s easy to understand that comparison. Being somewhat isolated means that Juneau must provide entertainment for her residents. Most will likely be happy exploring the surrounding wilderness, which included the awe-inspiring Mendenhall Glacier, but others might want to ... read more
check out popular local attractions like the Alaska brewing Company. There are many charter fishing operations run out of Juneau, as are there camping opportunities, which the US Forest Service regulates, offering both tented and cabin campsites. Visit Juneau and enjoy being surrounded by the excessive natural beauty that is Alaska.
