You must go to Tracy's King Crab Shack, one of the worlds great Hole In the Wall Restaurants. Juneau would have been great if it had not rained. Mendenhall Glacier's Visitor Center is really interesting, but as it was pouring rain, very crowded. If we had better weather, we would have hiked to the glacier.
Same story with the Mt. Roberts Tram. If it had not rained, we would have hiked around the summit. We ended up in the bar.
Some very atmospheric bars in town. There is the famous, but very touristy Red Dog Saloon. We went to the Alaska Hotel this time through town. You can imagine prospectors walking through its doors for some adult beverages.
I loved this town! Haines is the real Alaska, no tourist shops, no T-Shirt shops. There is a really interesting museum, some great stores featuring local artisans. Then there is the Pioneer Bar and Bamboo Room restaurant serving the best fish and chips that I've had anywhere. We missed the state fair by a day, I would have loved to attend that.
The weather really cut into this port, it was raining as if we were in Northern CA in January. We took a great excursion that had us biking and hiking. However the weather cut into our exploring this town. It is cute, and the church is worth seeing.
Great city. We spent the day exploring Vancouver's tremendous bike route network, going from Stanley Park to Granville Island and then back to downtown. Granville Island market is a must if you are a foodie. Stanley Park offers vistas of the entire area.
We also went to a great wine bar UVA and sampled Okanagan Valley wines from British Columbia. The wines were interesting.
I wish we had more than a morning here. The free tour of the Vancouver Legislative Assembly building is a must. We had coffee in the Empress Hotel and then wandered through the town looking at stores. We've been to Butchart Gardens on a previous cruise, but if you have not been here, you must go.
