Ketchikan is a quaint little town. Really a cool place. The weather was perfect when we were there. The locals told us it gets more rain than Seattle. We decided just to have an easy relaxing day and do some souvenir shopping for family back home. Ketchikan is definitely a good shopping place, so don't blow all your money before you there
We decided not to do a shore excursion here, but instead decided to rent a car and have our own adventure. We drove around the area and saw the local sights. We also drove up the white pass highway into Canada. This was much cheaper than taking the train trip to the same place and it allowed us to stop where we wanted.
