to tell a great story about Juneau
In Juneau, Alaska’s scenic capital city, cosmopolitan charm and rich history combine with the stunning wilderness of the Tongass National Forest and the bountiful waters of the Inside Passage. Juneau is Southeast Alaska’s hub with convenient air and ferry service to Inside Passage communities and to Glacier Bay National Park, Seattle (only 2 hours) and Anchorage.

Among other things, visitors can enjoy Alaska’s most accessible glacier, fly over the Juneau Icefield, discover the State Museum, gaze at humpback and orca whales, take a glacier cruise, tour a historic gold mine, ride the Mount Roberts Tram, savor fresh Alaskan seafood, shop downtown galleries, catch salmon and watch sea lions, seals, eagles and possibly bears. Juneau also has a thriving arts community with a local symphony, two major statewide music festivals, an award-winning theater, and countless local artists. Best of all, these authentic Alaskan experiences are all within 15 minutes of your hotel door or the cruise ship dock.

Quick facts:
  • population 32,164 (2011 census)
  • founded 1881
  • area: 3,248 sq miles (largest land area of any state capital, second largest land area of any U.S. city)
