Simple, easy and fast.
The first port of call on in our Alaskan Cruise was Juneau. Having been at sea level for the last two days, we decided that a view from high about the city would be a great way to start.
Without an advance reservation, we simply walked from our ship to the base of the Tramway. It was easy to find, just follow the wires as they come down the hill. (grin)
The trip was easier and faster than we expected. We bought two round-trip tickets and boarded the next tram. We couldn't see much while on the tram but did get a view of the town.
At the top, we visited the gift shop then spent some time at their Nature Center. There's a rescue eagle in a cage there that was fun to watch.
We finished with a short hike on the Alpine Loop Trail behind the Nature Center. Some were taking the long trail to the top of Mount Roberts but we decided to take the shorter loop trip and head back to the ship.
I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to visit Juneau but doesn't want to go downtown or take an (expensive) tour.
