Reviews of Juneau

Cool little seaside town in southwest Alaska which is also the state capital. Spend a weekend or more in Juneau and watch the cruise ships pull in and out or walk the docks to Tracy's King Crab Shack. Tons of hiking in every direction. There's a little bit of everything in Juneau but sunshine is in short supply. Matenuska Glacier and whale watching are also big hits.

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? 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.

Juneau is a great little town! If you are on a cruise ship, it will surely be one of your stops. There is a lot to do and see here: cute little shops, the Red Dog Saloon, Mendenhall Glacier, the Rainforest Garden, ziplining, dog sledding, etc. We had a wonderful time!

I caught an Orca Whale as he jumped not far from our excursion Alaska should be number one on anyone's bucket list. The scenery is gorgeous and the cruise was fantastic on Seven Seas Navigator. There was even a naturalist on board who we could listen to as we came and left pot. Book now.
