This is a cute little town and Creek Street is its mini version of Fisherman's Wharf. It's all within walking distance of the Cruise Dock so you don't have to pay for a guided tour , just head a couple of blocks in from the waterfront and you're there. Space in this town is at a premium so most of... More

After disembarking our cruise ship, we walked around Ketchikan - we did feel it necessary to go on a tour of the town, as all very close to the docks. Creek Street is very quaint, very touristy of course, with the usual shops selling nick=knacks etc. We did find that one of the stores selling rather nice anoraks, were selling... More

Creek Street was a fun place to walk around, lots of small shops and signage describing the history of the area and the buildings. There were a few totem poles in the little parks in the area.

My husband and I got off our ship as soon as possible and walked Creek Street before anyone else was there so that we could get some nice photos.

Even if you are not into all of the tourist shops, Creek Street is worth a visit. It is a great place to stroll around and vision the way it was back at the turn of the 20th century.

My grandson and I loved walking around Creek Street. It is definitely a 'must see' area of Ketchikan!! We were fortunate to have a mild sunny day which made the day perfect.

I am a local Ketchikan resident. I travel through Creek Street almost daily for my work. I recommend that everyone visiting Ketchikan stops by Creek Street to see the great architecture under the buildings, to see the salmon swimming up Ketchikan Creek to spawn, to check out some of the shops along the creek, and to get a bit of...

With 4 or 5 cruise ships on town, this was incredibly corded and felt like a giant flea market. Later in the day, as ships left the crowd disappeared and the pace slowed, but it is still filled with more touristy trap places than Alaskan Artists. The walking tour from Creek Street that followed the river was really beautiful and... More

Got off here after a marvelous trolly tour. The place is cute, colorful. The main attraction is Dolly's House, a refurbished brothel with a sign that reads "Where Men and Salmon Came Upstream to Spawn"-enough said. Once past dolly's the remainder of the street is a series of shops and restaurants. The saving grace is that it's a little more... More
