    Default Things to do around Juneau, Alaska? GDG

    My wife and some girlfriends are heading that way next month and I promised her I would ask. They are budgeting a bit as well. Any suggestions of "can't miss" type stuff would be fantastic.

    No, they are flying in. They are actually going to end up in Haines I think.

    My twin lives on the Kenai, so no help there, but her son will be going to college in Juneau this fall and JUST got back from a week up there. I'll ask them what the "don't miss" things are. It's supposed to be beautiful country!!

    OK, they they will want to book some type of a wildlife viewing boat charter/tour.
    You know...whales, seals, birds, sea otters...
    Unless, they like fishing. Then I would say a king salmon fishing charter would be a must. (They would likely see some whales on something like this too.)

    We were just in Juneau. Overall, I was not impressed. There is a reasonable museum, a glacier, and an aerial tram. If she has a chance, visit Sitka, which is a neat little place, a former Russian settlement with much more charm.

    Heh, heh. I was going to say that I've not visited Juneau and it is NOT on my list of place to go LOL.

    They had talked about going to Sitka but its 7 hours south? of Juneau and Haines is 4 hours North(all by ferry I guess). They are open to anything I guess.
