No visit to Ketchikan is complete unless you walk Creek Street. Besides the history of the area, where else can a person see spawning salmon (in season) up close and personal? Shops along the walkway offer a variety of souvenirs and collectibles, the pathway called...More

It's beautiful! I loved the brightly painted buildings and the river running by. We weren't there at the right time to see salmon heading upstream, unfortunately. Creek Street has a lot of shops, everything from typical tourist shops to local art. It's worth a walk...More

Lots of little stores & galleries. Cute area to walk around and shop local. Just turn things over and make sure it is made locally. Can get crowded with cruise visitors. Tour an old "Hotel" and get the local history.

This street of Ketchikan has the best shops, as there are interesting stores with interesting wares. The shops you encounter when you get off the ship are terrible tourist traps and diamond stores with pushy salespeople. Avoid those and walk a few blocks to Creek...More

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
