Juneau

 

Juneau America’s is one of America's most beautiful state capitals. In summer it’s the place to be for amazing outdoor adventures. Some of the best hiking starts 10 minutes from downtown, a massive glacier can be found just 12 miles up the road, and boats and seaplanes take off from the waterfront heading out for bear-viewing, ziplining and whale-watching. You will find an abundance of activities in Juneau. 

History

In 1880, Joe Juneau and Richard Harris searched for gold with the help of Native guides. They climbed mountains, waded through many streams and faced so many difficulties, then they struck it rich.
 
From Joe and Richard's discovery came three of the largest gold mines in the world. By the end of World War II, more than $150 million in gold had been mined. The mines eventually closed, but the town Joe Juneau founded became the capital of Alaska.
 
Only 30,000 people live in Juneau. Its total area, however, makes it one of the biggest towns, in size, in the world. 
 
Today Juneau is famous not only for gold, but also for its breathtakingly beautiful glaciers and stunning views of both water and mountains. 

Juneau is a stop you must not miss. You will be pulled into it's beauty as soon as you arrive.
