Juneau doesn't have a lot of roads so you can't go far. With 6 people it is still a smart choice for getting around.
Cruise ships pull in at the south end of downtown.
The drive north of town gets you out into the wilderness pretty quickly. The Shrine of St. Therese is a favorite stop of mine. Past there are some great beaches and hikes.
Back in town, there is the governor's mansion (house anyway), the capital building. Lunch at the fiddlehead restaurant is always good.

I would park and walk when you get within a few blocks of the cruise ship dock as it gets pretty crowded, especially if there are mulitple ships in.

From the Mendenhall Glacier, take "Back Loop Road" which winds you around the back side of Auke Lake and drops you into the Auke Bay area. From there, you can either head back to town (left) or continue on "out the road" (right). The Shrine of St. Therese is a favorite stop, as is Eagle Beach and the Pt. Bridget State Park at the end of the road. Once you've reached the end, turn around and head back toward town.

The Fiddlehead Restaurant isn't there anymore, so I can't recommend it! ;-)

If you've still got time to kill, head across the bridge and explore Douglas (left) and/or North Douglas (right)... you can kill at least an hour or two driving to the end of that road in both directions before you head back to the Juneau side of the bridge and into downtown (where it WILL be busy and full of cruise passengers.) If you keep on driving through downtown past the southernmost cruise ship dock, there's a great stop at Sheep Creek where there's a hatchery and always lots of fish and a nice beach to explore. Continuing on, you'll get to the Southern "end of the road" called Thane.

Depending how much time you spend nosing about at each stop, you can easily kill a day or more driving to all 3 ends of the road...

Happy Alaska Travels!

Travel Tips for Juneau

Have Jobs ---- Will Travel!

by starship

One of the best things about traveling is talking to people, young and old, who live and work in the area you are visiting. I had several opportunities to either talk to, or listen to quite a few young people who had all moved to Juneau for the summer. Although housing isn't easy to find and isn't inexpensive, these young people can find relatively good jobs here---from driving tour buses, to manning whalewatching boats and beyond. These young people are friendly and more than willing to talk about their experiences and what summer life is like in Alaska. In their free time, they have the ability to explore Alaska as most of us never will!! I have to admit I felt a pang of jealousy that these young people had the freedom and self-assuredness to leave home and experience a different life and lifestyle in this beautiful state of Alaska. I was never that self-assured until I reached my 50's.

I also felt a pang of worry when I realized that my children might leave home one summer to do the same thing. I will not be surprised if my son announces one day that he will be spending the summer working in Alaska.

In the next moment, I felt a certain pride that we had been able to give our children the GIFT and experience of world travel, and instill self-assuredness and interest in wanting new adventures while they have the opportunity. Maybe you'll meet my son while he's working in Juneau one summer!!

go on a walkabout (as us aussies do)

by skatzcatz

Juneau is one of the many towns through the inside passage of Alaska where wandering the streets (or going walkabout) is the only real way to get a taste of the place. Try it in Juneau, its fun trying to get lost.

Art Deco Architecture

by emilienoelle

Much of Juneau was built in the early 20th Century when art deco-style architecture was in vouge. This is my favorite architectural style, so I found myself taking lots of pictures of buildings. The electric company's office was great as were a few other places. It's funny though because even though art deco is very "modern-looking" in places like Reykjavik and the Hoover Dam, in Juneau it looks sort of "frontier". It could just be the mountainous background, but I thought it was neat.

Don't go unprepared!

by HispanicYob

Make sure to bring a good sturdy jacket, possibly one extra layer and a pair of sunglasses in case it gets too bright Your digital camera Remember, Alaska's weather can be pretty unpredictable, not excluding Juneau itself. If you can, get a weather forecast so you don't get left out in the cold.

Juneau Trails

by Colewade

There are hikes for every taste and abilty in Juneau, I have included my top picks below. For a comprehensive list and map, try the links below.

Top Choice for a Easy Hike
Hike to Holy Cross from Mt. Roberts tramway. A 30 to 45 minute loop from the top of the tramway brings spectacular scenery, and you don't have to work for this view of the entire region. At $21.95 watch the film in Tlingit culture and enjoy the bald eagle exhibit. It's touristy but easy. How else could one climb from 0 to 2000 feet in 6 minutes. You can also connect with the Mt. Roberts trail and save yourself 2000 feet of climbing on a summit hike.

Top Hoice for a Moderate Hike
The West Glacier / Ice Caves Trail is the moderate to strenuous hike that will take 3-5 hours to complete. Pick up the West Glacier Trail at the end of Skater's Cabin Road off Montana Creek Road. The trail offers great lookout points and glacier views. There are also blue ice caves on the trail which can easliy be seen, but are very dangerous to actually enter.

Stenuous Hikes
Almost all the taller mountains surrounding Juneau require a 6-9 hour strenuous trip. Mt. Juneau is one of the most difficult and scenic. A layered outfit with long pants, hard soled shoes, or hiking boots. Rain gear. You may need the extra layers on the waterfront or at high elevations
