Ketchikan Shop, Sites and Bites

Your walking tour takes place directly in downtown Ketchikan where history comes to life. Join in on this 2-hour adventure and walk in the footsteps where early settlers trod when Ketchikan was established, and the first cannery began operation. Learn of the history and culture of this town that began in 1885.

Incorporated in 1900, Ketchikan attracted a wide variety of rugged pioneers, such as loggers, miners, fishermen, missionaries, bush pilots, bootleggers, and more. As the migration began in the early part of the 20th century, they all were seeking their fortunes and to begin new lives, to save the lost ones, live off the land, or possibly to simply misbehave.

This local experience will take you by prominent artisan shops for one-of-a-kind souvenir shopping as well as a stroll through the infamous Red-Light District along Creek Street. Take your picture holding the famous Gold Nugget located in town. Enjoy the finest Alaskan crepe while at the Alaskan Crepe Company and samples of other local delicious fares to round out your tour.

This truly Alaskan experience is a short but comprehensive introduction to this scenic little town and will leave you time afterward for further self-exploration and discovery.
