If you have some extra time while in Ketchikan Creek Street is definitely worth walking around. It's a very cute area with little shops you can go into and it's all on a boardwalk. Creek street also meets up with a trail that you can...More

It was a beautiful day to visit contrary to the local habit of having lots of rain or liquid sunshine as the local call it.

This area was beautiful and the history extremely interesting. But I would have liked to visit it 20 years ago before the cruise business made it so commercialized. However we did purchase some salmon and reindeer sausage in the area that was excellent and some...More
