  • Wonderful little getaway. We took the FREE tour from the National Park Headquarters. It was great. You can pick your tour and time. Sign up early they go fast. Best place for souvenir shopping. We also hiked Lower Lake Trail on the advice from a guy who worked at the general store. A quiet getaway.
  • It is great place to start you visit. They have free movie and free and payed walking tours.
  • Great historical information on early alaska.
  • The best stop on the cruise. We spent most of our time off the main drag discovering fisheries and abandoned train machines.
  • I cannot figure how Google has me listed here. I was on a cruise ship in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. I am sure this is 5 star so want to rate 5 stars ...it sounds exotic and hope to go!!
