Juneau, Alaska

Juneau, the capital of Alaska, is a town accessible only by air and sea. It was founded during the rush for gold in the 1880s and was named after Joe Juneau, the prospector who first discovered gold in this state. Today, much of its independent frontier atmosphere remains. The infamous and rowdy Red Dog Saloon coexists beside impressive modern office towers. It has a superb location, snuggled between the flanks of 3,600-foot Mt. Juneau and the picturesque Gastineau Channel. Mountains, glaciers and the sea are everywhere to be seen. Among its many attractions, Juneau is our gateway to the Mendenhall Glacier, a 12-mile river of ice that is Alaska’s most accessible, and most photographed, glacier.

Skagway, Alaska

Discover the flavor of the gold rush era in Skagway. In its heyday, this atmospheric frontier town was the largest in Alaska. During the height of the gold boom, Skagway was known as the gateway to the goldfields, and its population went from 2 to 10,000 in a single year. At one time it boasted 80 saloons and was known as the “roughest town on earth.” Although its population is now less than 1,000, its rip-roaring past will come alive as you stroll along Broadway or browse through the Trail of ’98 Museum’s outstanding collection of memorabilia.

Ketchikan, Alaska

Ketchikan is the salmon capital of the world and a paradise for fishermen and nature-lovers alike. A quiet city, it hosts quaint restaurants perched on stilts above the water, scores of fascinating shops and spectacular views from every vantage point. Although Ketchikan’s Indian name means “Thundering Wings of an Eagle,” it is also known as “Alaska’s First City,” so coined as it is frequently the first stop along the Inside Passage. Venture ashore and discover Ketchikan’s rich Indian heritage, visit the world’s largest collection of authentic totem poles at Totem Bight and walk along the rustic boardwalk on Creek Street where stilt-buildings in the harbor preserve a distinct pioneer feel. Or, we welcome you to paddle a kayak on sheltered waters, take a floatplane to a remote mountain lake or try your hand at sport fishing. Regardless of how you plan to spend your time in “Alaska’s First City,” we’re sure your visit will be a memorable one.
