Go to the visitor center and pick up a walking tour map. It will take you through Creek Street, a charming town with lots of history.

This is a busier port. We took the city bus ($2 one way)to Totem Bight ($5 entry fee). We got there before the coach loads of people arrived and it was magical. If you let the rain stop you, you won't see anything in Ketchikan. There are plenty of souvenir shops in Ketchikan to do last minute shopping.

We only saw the area by the port but liked it. Our daughter, son in law and their 2 kids ages 11 and 7 went to the Saxson Village and enjoyed it. They saw totem poles and the Indians put on a nice show. The shops by the port have some neat things in them. We ate lunch at Annabelles. The seafood was great.

This is the it place to get your shopping done. Great variety, budget friendly selections and genuine local vendors. This differs a lot from the other ports which are bombarded by jewelers and pricier vendors owned by the cruise lines. There is also a free white school bus that shuttles you around town. 20min waiting intervals near the cruise tram.

It would be nice to have more time here. Walk to Creek Street and read the historical markers. A trail takes you past two areas where salmon run (when in season).

The trifecta. . .so to speak. . .lol - started our day with a visit to the native Indian village (immersed ourselves in their history, dance, totem poles, etc.), then went onto the lumber jack show (cheesy like a Disney or Universal show but well worth it - these guys are pretty athletic and strong to do the skills they do with axes), finally had time to shop and wander through town, there's a nice visitor center with exhibits, free.

There is not much shopping time at all in Ketchican so if you book any excursions, make sure to shop as soon as you dock because you won't have much time afterwards. I booked the double Lumber Jack show and Saxman Village tour and that is all that I had time to do. Would have liked to browsed through some shops.
