Ketchikan, Alaska overview

The first cruise ship appeared in Ketchikan 114 years ago, and it has been a favorite port ever since. You can tour the area by boat, bus, horse-drawn trolley, or even a restored 1955 Chevy. The most famous part of town is Creek Street. The homes once comprising the red light district are now filled with arts, crafts and gift shops. Totem poles are everywhere, with 24 at Saxman Native Totem Park.

Loved Ketchikan! We did not book an excursion, just walked the city, then took a short hike. Great shopping, lots of eagles. Beautiful stop with plenty to do.

OH MY...I blew my travel budget at this port which is my favorite. Bought 2 pieces of native Alaskan art, l a beautiful bentwood carved/paintned box and the other a very unique 36-38" totem. So worth this port call to visit and explore.

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.
