Best Things To Do in Juneau

There are not a great number of things to do in small Juneau. However, Mother Nature puts on quite a display for those adventurous enough to go looking in the Last Frontier. While Mendenhall Glacier steals most of the attention and tourist traffic, those who visit Tracy Arm Fjord find the scenery and wildlife unforgettable. For some more accessible natural beauty, head to the Glacier Gardens Rainforest Adventure and breathe in the flower-scented air. And if you require some indoor repose, sample some of the suds at the Alaska Brewing Company.
