History, Salmon and Culture

Historic little area to walk and to see the salmon. Beautiful old buildings, locals fishing, food, shopping and history.

A must see

I thought Creek St was the best part of this trip. Just amazing that many of these are the original houses and the way it’s built up on a boardwalk with a creek in the middle is beautiful. We were able to visit and lucky enough to see bear and seals eating lunch from the creek!

Great history of a fishing village. Nice walking and safe area. Close to food and shopping.The color of the buildings make for a perfect photograph.

Delightful touristy area

Enjoyed the shopping. Lucky to be there and see the area where salmon were going upstream. Can't believe these fish fight that waterfall.

A MUST see if you are in Ketchikan
Jul 2021
We stayed in Ketchican for a week and came here every day. Just walking on the old wooden bridges and looking for salmon in the water, rain or shine, was peaceful. With no cruise ships yet it was like we had the town to ourselves.

Lovely picturesque area
Jul 2021
This is probably the main event when visiting Ketchikan. The former red-light district, buildings have been converted to restaurants, coffee houses, jewelry, clothing and souvenir shops. Dolly’s House, a former bordello is now a museum. You can walk thru in 10 minutes, more if you stop and shop. Don’t miss it.

Someone’s knocking at the door… Somebody’s ringing the bell. Do me a favor and let us in.

Unique place. Got some great photos there that I couldn’t get anywhere else. Our first visit was photo’s only, because everything was closed. Our second visit… still closed. Decided to see the rest of the town.
