Juneau
Mendenhall Glacier Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Great view of this glacier from the well equipped visitor centre.

There is also a pretty water-fall to walk to or just view.


Mount Roberts Tramway Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
There are great views available up here although, being Juneau, you might not see much because of the clouds and mist. I rated it as a 4 because the clouds were down on that day! You can also get a meal at the restaurant which, among other things, serves locally caught crab. This is also the starting point for some good hikes, short and long.

Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Well, to be honest, there is not much to see here except to wonder that you are in a land locked fishing hamlet miles from civilisation - just a bit different to make you want to go and visit!

For those with a bit of dangerlust there is a zip-line ride which claims to be the longest in north America and gets you going up to 60 miles/hour. I saw grannies taking this trip.

Rainforest Hike Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
We did the rainforest hike on the island via the speedboat. Great speedboat trip to the island. Boat stopped several times to check out bald eagles and nests. Island temperate rain-forest quite interesting for those into that kind of thing. Hike is easy board walk of about 1 mile. Vendor provided hot drinks and fresh smoked salmon snack at end of hike - nice unadvertised suprise.
