Juneau is an unusual state capital in many respects.
Juneau is known for wildlife, nature, adventure, shopping, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: contemplate the waterfront views at Tracy Arm Fjord, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at DIPAC's Macaulay Salmon Hatchery, get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and look for gifts at Glacier Smoothie Soaps LLC.

For where to stay, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, read our Juneau vacation planner .
