I very much appreciate the work of the trade in Fish Creek Co. It has the most pages of offers of goods and service with the permanent registration of the orders. Everything I bought there.

Interesting collection of tourist shops set on stilts above the creek. Picturesque historic block to wander through and browse. The driver for our earlier excursion mentioned this spot and dropped us off. It was just a short walk back to town center.

Out and about exploring we came across this little gem, history was fantastic, all the gift stores got to be too much with all having very similar products, otherwise somewhere that is enjoyable to meander through especially taking the tram up to the lodge and walking back down through the married men's trail

A cute area to walk through. We saw a seal and some crazy kids swimming in the creek. Besides the art gallery at the end I don't really think it's worth going into any of the shops.

Very quaint and picturesque town shopping and good eats. East to get to from cruise port - worth the few minute walk. Souvenir and art stores galore!

Walking along Creek Street gives a peek into the history of what Ketchikan was like in its earlier days. The examples of architecture is picturesque, which makes for great photos opportunities. We were entertained for a short while by a harbor seal swimming along the creek.

While strolling the town of Ketchikan, you come upon Creek Street and if you listen to a local, you'll learn about the Salmon run in July and August. We were there in mid-June, although lovely, no fish. The shops are well equipped with merchandise not found in other ports and the prices are very fair. Wish we had more time.

This is a short stretch of nice old wooden houses that used to be the red light district. Nothing of that is seen today (apart from a museum), instead you have the normal tourist trade.

Creek Street was one of the highlights of Ketchikan. After our shore excursion we browsed the shops and then went exploring in the pouring rain. Shortly before the cruise departed we discovered Creek Street, and what a treat it was - even in the rain! The shops were quaint, the history interesting and the atmosphere tranquil.
