Our stop in Juneau was wonderful. As soon as we got off of the boat we went to Tracy's Crab Shack to try the king crab that we've heard so much about. The crab legs were huge and the crab cakes and bisque was delicious! My husband had to have two legs. Needless to say, we wasted $ on that one. He couldn't make it through one with the crab cakes and bisque. I recommend buying only one - no matter how much your significant other begs for more. If they are still hungry, you can always get another one later. We headed back to the ship to meet for our excursion. We purchased the Whale Watching / Orca Point Lodge / Mendenhal Glacier excursion. We took a bus to see the Glacier. The bus driver was great! He shared there was a hiking path "Nugget Trail" that led to a beautiful waterfall near the Glacier. It was a one-mile hike there and back. We had 1 hour there so we were able to make it there and back and have 10 minutes at the waterfall for pictures and 10 minutes at the gift shop. I'm so gl...

Loved the Mendenhall Glacier and also went to the Gold Creek Salmon Bake. Great place to eat and check out the waterfall and the fire pits for the marsh mellows to roast! Love the town of Juneau!

Juneau is a very neat town. You have to see the mendenhall Glacier. It's spectacular. If you don't mind walking it's about a mile walk on a good trail to marble falls. If you don't want to walk that far it's just a short distance on a good trail to a scenic point where you can see the falls, Glacier, lake and the surrounding mountains. The city is nice and easy to move around in. Try the Twisted Fish for lunch. Excellent clam chowder.

Pilots choice glacier tour was AMAZING! One of the best excursions I've been on. We landed on 2 separate glaciers and got to walk around and take pictures.

Loved Juenau. Went on the dog sled excursion. It was expensive, but worth it for me because I love dogs. I'm not sure everyone would enjoy it. It's a 2 mile dog sled ride with lots of others, then a few tents with historical artifacts, cookies, and a tour guide. Then a bit of time to hold and play with the sled dog puppies (2 to share with the whole group). My favorite was whale watching. We got lucky and saw orcas along with hump backs.
