My very favorite thing to visit so far in Alaska is the Mendenhall Glacier. It is breath-taking!...

small town, free WiFi in the library located on top of the parking garage located across from the Marine Park and Red Dog Saloon. Musher Camp excursion offered by cruise line is the same one they offer in Skagway (on dirt). There are tons of booths for sight seeing tours if you don't purchase on the ship, they are located on the docks. If interested in Jewelry, Jewels by Kris were super friendly and not so pushy.

Make sure to visit the Mendenhall Glacier and Nugget falls. It's only a $12 shuttle which you can get right outside the ship. No need to prebook an excursion. It will take only 2-3 ours back and forth. If you want the additional experience, do the dog sledding either on land (via shuttle) or on the Glacier (via helicopter).

GREAT port ! Beautiful. Whale watching and Mednhaul Glacier: ok, first, the glacier - NO reason to spend huge sums to see it. a short bus ride leads to the park where you can walk 5 minutes to see the glacier or walk one (VERY EASY) mile to see the glacier AND an amazing waterfall - WELL worth the EASY walk. Whale watching - it's a hit or miss. You'll see them elsewhere, but, if your looking to see them feed, again, they dont do it on command. The port is GORGEOUS and the shopping is decent....although MUCH better prices in Ketchikan.

The gold panning was fun experience. It was amazing that the gold stays in the pan even if you hold the pan upside down. The helicopter ride to the glacier and being able to walk on the glacier was one of the highlights of the trip. It was an unreal experience. Totally worth the time and dollars to do.

You must go Whale watching with Juneau Whale Watching through Juneau Tours right on the dock. The crew is very skilled at what they do. We saw 16 whales, really! My husband said jokingly, it was a "whale petting tour". CPT Dirk, AJ, and Christian were wonderful! Also loved the Mendenhall Glacier! Must walk it all! Breathtaking!

Look for 'locally' or 'Alaskan' made symbols when shopping. Otherwise everything was made in Chine sold by foreigners there for the summer season. The Tram up the mountain was fun, but eat lunch before you go! The restaurant at the top NOT worth it! (we got 3 'fish stick' sized pieces of halibut with fries and coleslaw for $22).
