KETCHIKAN

 ketchikan alaska  

 

The beautiful community of Ketchikan is situated along the shores of Alaska's Inside Passage within the heart of the sixteen million acre Tongass National Forest. Evergreen mountains rise out of the water, the lush green landscape nurtured by the abundant rainfall of the temperate rainforest environment. The community is comprised of three islands, Revillagigedo, Gravina and Pennock and transportation between them requires a boat or ferry ride across the Tongass Narrows.

Ketchikan is 90 minutes by air from Seattle and 36 hours by sea. The second largest cruise port in the state, they are a popular destination for independent minded travelers too, due to superb fishing, outdoor recreation, thriving Native culture and amazing scenery. The bounty of Wild Alaska seafood offerings at local dining establishments is yet another delicious reason to visit.

Home to 13,700 year around residents, Ketchikan is a vibrant, hard working community. One of "America's Top 100 small arts communities" Ketchikan’s impressive variety of shops and galleries feature work by many of the island’s resident artists and an assortment of souvenir items and unique gifts that make shopping in our community a must do for any traveler.

This close knit community of 13,700 offers visitors a remarkable array of activities and attractions that highlight the town's history, industry and culture, bring you up close to the resident wildlife or transport you into the midst of wilderness.

JUNEAU

      

Juneau, the capital of Alaska, bursts during the summer with hundreds of thousands of cruise-ship passengers. Twelve decades ago, the young city was swamped with prospectors.  Juneau was founded as a gold-mining camp in 1880. It became Alaska territorial capital in 1900, home of the Legislature in 1912 and Alaska state capital in 1959 upon statehood. There's no highway access to the rest of Alaska or to Canadian provinces. 

Popular Juneau attractions

Mount Roberts Tram, Alaska State Museum, Capitol, Mendenhall Glacier, flightseeing, salmon hatchery and fishing.

 

GLACIER BAY NATIONAL PARK

Positioned on the Alaska panhandle west of Juneau, Glacier Bay National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is managed by the U.S. National Park Service.

Glaciers descending from high snow capped mountains into the bay create spectacular displays of ice and iceberg formation.

In total the park and preserve cover 5,130 sq. miles (13,287 sq. km). Most of Glacier Bay is designated wilderness area which covers 4,164 sq. miles (10,784 sq km).

Wildlife in the area includes both grizzly and black bears, moose, sitka black-tailed deer, mountain goats, dall sheep, wolves, Canada lynx, sea otters, harbor seals, Steller sea lions, Pacific white-sided dolphins, orcas, minke whales, humpback whale, bald eagles, gulls, waterfowl, and salmon.

SITKA

The onion domes of St. Michael's Cathedral are your first clue that Sitka was once a key Russian settlement. Indeed, it was capital of Russian America, seat of the bishop of Kamchatka, and the most important port on the West Coast for the first half of the 19th century. Catch a performance by the New Archangel Dancers, be greeted by native Tlingit people, then stand on the spot where the United States took possession of Alaska in 1867. The dramatic setting in the shadow of Mt. Edgecumbe is one of the loveliest in the Great North.

 

VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA

    

Butchart Gardens is one of the most popular places to visit when you go to Victoria.  It is one of the world's premier floral show gardens. Jennie Butchart began to shape this magnificent landscape in 1904. She established, in the style of the grand estates of the period, several distinct gardens to evoke a range of aesthetic experiences. An abandoned limestone quarry was transformed into the dramatic Sunken Garden, a reflection of the early 20th-century beautification movement and an exceptional achievement in Canadian gardening history. Through successive generations of the Butchart family, The Gardens has retained much of its original design, and continues the Victorian tradition of seasonally changing the outstanding floral displays.

 

Victoria, British Columbia is a charming city where you can explore the museums, have high tea at the Empress Hotel or stroll the waterway.  This is truly a charming city.
