Ketchikan is truly the beginning of the last frontier. Set at the southernmost entrance to Alaska's famed Inside Passage. It's known as "The Salmon Capital of the World". A bustling harbor, this port is also known for it's many Native American totem poles on display throughout town. The Tongass Rainforest provides red cedar logs for the totems. One of the best places to view them are in Totem Bright State Park, just a short walk from the dock. Nearby Misty Fjords is a glacier-carved wilderness featuring snow-capped mountains, waterfalls and salmon spawning streams. The dramatic terrain is home to a multitude of wildlife, including bears, black-tailed deer, bald eagles, mink and martens - perhaps an Alaskan float plane tour is on your bucket list? A day in Ketchikan wouldn't be completed without a stroll along the boardwalk at Creek Street and the action-packed Great Alaska Lumberjack show that brings to life the colorful forest history of Alaska
