Lots of tourist shops and lots to see. It is an enjoyable walk and should be part of a visit to Ketchikan.

Walking along creek street gets you past some tourist stories at one end, including Dolly's House, all the way up the hill with some photo points along the creek. Unfortunately the salmon were not running when we visited (it was a little early in the season for that).

Creek Street is basically a boardwalk that runs along a creek. It's really nice for a walk, and there is a number of shops to stop in on.

Really interesting to walk around this area of town. Shame there are so many tourist tat shops but there are a couple of really lovely shops in there too. The history of this area is fascinating. We were there while the salmon were heading upstream. We stood for a long time just watching them and were rewarded with a seal... More

This is generally a "must-visit" part of Ketchikan. It is not far from the cruise port (most people to Ketchikan arrive by cruise ships) and the signs to this part of the town is well marked. I personally think it is a little cheesy and very touristy. Almost all the historic houses on the street now are souvenir shops. However,... More

Shopping area set at the end of town. Lots of local merchants with authentic Alaskan goods. Built on boardwalks over the creek.

Stopped on a Princess Cruise. Great history of the area, and the houses being built above the water is an interesting feature, but it's now just essentially a string of tourist shops. Worth a walk-through but that's about it.

Didn't spend a long time there, but the area is pretty. Wish I had more time to explore buy my port time was short.
