Juneau is an unusual state capital in many respects.
Step out of the city life by going to Tracy Arm Fjord and Dolphin & Whale Watching. Get a sense of the local culture at Yaakw Kahidi Cultural Center and Juneau Arts & Humanities. There's much more to do: indulge your thirst for a good beer at Alaskan Brewery and Bottling Company, take in the exciting artwork at Fairweather Gallery and Gifts, take in the dramatic scenery at Nugget Falls, and explore the striking landscape at Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center.

For other places to visit, ratings, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Juneau driving holiday planner .
