There's not much to see on Creek Street. It's very overhyped. Visit only if you run out of things to see.

We walked along this beautiful creek and searched diligently for salmon coming upstream but one of the shop owners said that they were late because there had not been any rain since May and the water was low and green algae growing.

We went very early in the morning and just walked through. Mid July and would have liked to see salmon spawning but too early this year. It's a good walk and not far from the port. Signs are well marked.

A good venture into old Ketchikan... albeit updated for tourists! It does, however, give you the look and feel of frontier small Alaskan fishing town. Excellent photo ops. And depending on the season, the salmon could be running and adding to the atmosphere.

If you are lucky enough to visit Kethikan, you have to see Creek Street and all the neat shops and trails nearby.
