Juneau is a small but vibrant city whose exceedingly beautiful surroundings are a preview of Alaska's famously triumphant landscapes. Juneau was named after a gold prospector, and that hardy, optimistic spirit remains central to the state capital today. Unique among American cities, there are no actual roads connecting Juneau to the rest of Alaska, or even to the rest of North America! But don't worry, there are still rental cars in Juneau, so hop in your chosen vehicle - perhaps even take them on the ferry - and have the north country adventure of a lifetime.
Juneau flights land at Juneau International Airport, just eight miles from the city center and a straight shot down Route 7 with Juneau rental cars. Within Juneau itself, be sure to check out the Alaska State Museum to learn about the past of the Alaskan people, and don't miss the Mount Roberts Tramway just south of downtown, where a cable car grants you the best panoramic views of Juneau around. Despite the city's confinement, you can travel about an hour outside Juneau. Head to the aptly-named Deer Island just opposite the city for hiking and hunting. Follow Route 7 back toward the airport until the end of the road, where you'll arrive at Point Bridget State Park. Enjoy this prime salmon spawning ground and hike - or in the winter, snowshoe - through stunning meadows and over rocky beaches. A shorter distance outside of town, just 12 miles, will bring you to Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center, where you can hike in part of the Tongass National Forest.
Despite its relative isolation, Juneau offers a variety of attractions that are refreshingly distinct from the average state capital. Search for Juneau car rentals and hotels in Juneau on Travelocity, and benefit from mobile exclusive discounts on the Travelocity app.
