The Alaska State Capitol building in downtown Juneau is more than 25 years older than the state. Originally built for the Alaska Territorial Legislature in 1931, it did not become the capital until Alaska became a state in 1959.
Most of the downtown area of Juneau can be seen on foot in less than an hour giving you more than enough time to participate in an active outdoor Juneau Excursion such as the Juneau Mendenhall Glacier Float and River Rafting Excursion, take advantage of the exceptional whale watching Juneau Shore Excursion opportunities such as our Juneau Exclusive Whale Watching Excursion or our Juneau Whale Watching and Salmon Bake Excursion; or get up in the air and start to get a grasp of just how enormous Alaska is while on our Juneau Helicopter Icefield Flightseeing Excursion. Save time to sample some fresh salmon direct from the local waters while visiting Juneau Alaska by cruise ship, the best option for having a local experience is our Juneau Gold Creek Salmon Bake Excursion.
Fun Fact: Juneau was named for gold prospector Joseph "Joe" Juneau, who, along with Richard Harris, found gold nuggets in Snow Slide Gulch.
