Juneau is an unusual state capital in many respects. Perhaps the most striking thing about the city is that there are no roads connecting it to the rest of the state, forcing most people to arrive by boat or aircraft. The size of the city is also remarkable; at 7,036 sq km (2,717 sq mi), it is almost as large as Rhode Island and Delaware combined. Juneau is perhaps one of the country's most scenic state capitals, surrounded by natural beauty with a downtown area nestled below steep mountains. Its landscape offers visitors on vacation a full outdoor itinerary, including whale watching, fishing, kayaking, and hiking. Though Juneau is best known for its natural delights, the city center boasts attractions like museums, galleries, and historical sites. Our United States tour itinerary planning site combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
