Popular places to visit in Juneau
Tourism has replaced gold mining as the biggest business in Juneau, the capital of Alaska. Visitors flock to the city at the base of Mount Juneau to see its spectacular glaciers and forests, fish in its waterways, and explore its intriguing culture and heritage. Juneau vacations can mean spotting bears on land and whales in the water; kayaking in summer and cross-country skiing in winter; or just strolling through town, shopping for handicrafts and souvenirs, and feasting on local seafood.
One of Juneau's major attractions is the Mendenhall Glacier, looming over downtown from 13 miles away. With car rentals in Juneau , you can drive to this natural treasure and see the face of a mass of ice that reaches some 1,800 feet below ground. Use the lookout platforms along the photo point trail for the best viewpoints, or hike along trails that flank the face of the glacier. On a warm summer day, drive across the Juneau-Douglas Bridge to Douglas Island, where you'll find the only sandy beach in the region. The island is also home to Eaglecrest, an expansive ski are with Nordic trails and downhill runs. Other outdoor adventures include a zip-line tour through the forest canopy, mountain biking, hiking, and kayaking. After such adventures, you'll be ready to retire to your cozy Juneau hotel .
