Excursions cancelled due to fog grounding helicopters and sea planes. The area near port is just a bunch of touristy shops, which is so sad to see. Mt. Roberts Tramway is close to port though, as is Tracy's Crab Shack. Further afield are some cuter shops and a museum. Juneau could be a lot more interesting if they took away some of the schtick near port. Read Less

We rented a car in Juneau at Avis, which is on the walk towards town, and drove up to Mendenhall Glacier and then up to the road to the "end of the road". I didn't care for the shopping in town though - too many jewelry guys and cheap souvenirs from China. They do have a Costco and grocery stores if you need to buy other basics you might have forgotten. Must get salmon cakes (and/or salmon burger) at Salmon Spot! Amazing! Be sure and look for bears at Mendenhall. We didn't know to and kept hearing stories and seeing videos from others throughout the week about their bear sightings there. Read Less

Juneau was heavily inundated with Cruise Port jewelry shops, places with locations in major cruise ports in Alaska and the Caribbean with locally themed swag. If you weren't looking for jewelry or something with the words ALASKA on it, you were probably out of luck. The entire area by the port is a big tourist trap with a number of the rudest sales reps I’ve ever met. I did manage to walk far enough to get to some local shops, local artists, and local native wears, but it was a few blocks back away from the main drag. Read Less

Clean, nice town. Not a lot to see in town other than the usual shopping, just the same as every other port, but still nice to wander around. Stay away from the tram unless you like hiking on the top of the mountain. Locals tell me it ... Read More
Clean, nice town. Not a lot to see in town other than the usual shopping, just the same as every other port, but still nice to wander around. Stay away from the tram unless you like hiking on the top of the mountain. Locals tell me it is an expensive, 5 minute ride to a location that has little to offer other than overpriced food.
