We enjoyed downtown Juneau and stopping at the Red Dog Saloon. This is yet another saloon that is worth at least stopping in and having a beer. You could spend an hour just looking at everything that is on the walls. The piano player is very entertaining and the beer was the coldest that we were served anywhere. One thing I will add here is that the weather in Alaska is very unpredictable and it does rain / drizzle often. If you are prepared for rain or shine you will be fine. Nuff said.
We spent the afternoon salmon fishing with Ken and Northern Lights Charters. We had a blast!! We had five poles in the water, and we all caught our limit (6 pink salmon) in the 3.5 hours we were on the water. Ken was excellent in communicating before we even left on our trip, and was a lot of fun on the excursion. I would absolutely fish with him again!!
Skagway itself has a lot of jewelry shops and gift shops. Take it for what it is... a tourist town during "the season". We did go into the Red Onion Saloon when we returned to town. Worth the time to see and enjoy, but very touristy. Back to ship.
