Travel Tips for Ketchikan
-If you are up and off the cruise ship early in the morning the town is almost empty. We were able to get amazing photos of Creek Street without anyone in them.
-At the end of Creek Street there is a vernicular that goes up to a hotel. Early in the morning the ride is free. Later in the day I am pretty sure it only costs a few dollars. Outside of the hotel in their front drive there is a great grouping of totem poles.
-The Lumberjack Show is fantastic. It is a great hour of fun!
-Ketchikan is extremely easy to walk around. The boat pulls right up to the city and you can walk almost everywhere in town.
-There are a ton of shops and restaurants really close to where the boat docks. You can easily walk back onto the boat for lunch if you do not want to pay for it in town.
-It rains a lot in Ketchikan! Be prepared with a parka or rain jacket with you.
