Juneau, AK

Accessible only by air or sea, Alaska’s capital city entices travelers with its beauty, tranquility and outdoor activities. The Mendenhall Glacier, the jewel of the Juneau Icefield, can be discovered on scenic drives, hikes, boat rides, rafting trips, kayaking excursions and helicopter tours. Thrill-seekers get their adrenaline fix while ziplining above alpine forests, and culture lovers learn about landmarks such as the governor’s mansion and St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church during explorations of downtown. A prospector-led panning adventure to Last Chance Basin allows you to strike gold, just as folks did in the late 19th century. Juneau’s waters are a hot spot for humpback whales, and daily cruises afford the opportunity to witness these majestic creatures—a truly unforgettable experience. Brush up on local history with a visit to the Alaska State Museum, and cap off the day’s adventures with a sampling of freshly caught salmon and locally sourced beer.
