Really Great to Walk Around

The history of Creek Street is so fun and entertaining. Its great to walk around and poke around in all of the little shops. Also if you look into the creek its filled with Salmon!

this was a great place to visit at high and low tides! We were there at a non-tourist time and most everything was closed!

The Creek walk is the BEST thing to do in This lovely Alaskan town. It is BEST to go late July to mid August. WHY, you might ask. The answer is Sun and Salmon. This is a Very rainy town, so your chances of a lovely walk are best at that time of year. That is also the best time... More

This street is so unique and beautiful. There are so many great shops! I loved that there were shops full of local artwork and handicrafts. My favourite souvenirs from Alaska were bought here from a local artist who had a small studio in the back of another shop, featuring all of his fantastic Native Alaskan artwork. I had a chance...

This was amusingly history of the early days of Trap Fishing. The area is surrounded by stories of the old brothel and the fisherman who ran the narrows. Lots of fun, just a tram ride down from our fabulous hotel.

This is a fun place if you have never been. Beautiful scenery, quirky shops and a quaint hotel. The fun history of Ketchikan etc., Once or twice is enough though.

We had a wonderful time strolling through Creek Street. there were tons of Salmon in the river and we enjoyed watching them jump up the salmon ladder. “Yeltatzie’s Salmon” by Terry Pyles was a beautiful sculpture we saw on our walk. The historic building were cool to look at and then even had plaques on the outside that told the... More

This beautiful area of Ketchikan has lots of picture-taking opportunities and lots of rich history. Many of the buildings do or once belonged to the brave women who braved the wilds of Alaska to start their own businesses and their stories are written on useful boards placed on the houses themselves. The little shops are interesting to peek into. I... More

Interesting and pretty walk through the quaint shops & restaurants. Nice area to spend time shopping and strolling the boardwalk (The old Red Light District). Layed back & peaceful. Not really for children. We were there during the Salmon run, it was a great place to see them jumping their way up stream! Exciting to see!
