Ketchikan, Alaska PDF Print E-mail

A shopper’s paradise and a nature buff’s dream. This "Gateway City" has so little flat ground that entire streets and sidewalks are built on docks over the water. Ketchikan is also considered Alaska's "Rain Capital" with over 155 inches per year. Be sure to pack your raincoat! Visit the galleries and jewelry and souvenir shops that line the docks or take a flight-seeing tour of breathtaking Misty Fjords National Monument.

Ketchikan is also home to Alaska's Native Cultural Center, is a sport fishing capital, and is home to the world's largest collection of totems at Saxman Village. If you are interested in flight-seeing, this is our #3 pick (after Denali and Skagway).
