Ketchikan, AK


A traveler's first view of this Inside Passage port town may be of a boat-filled harbor enveloped in snow-capped mountains. The rustic city of Ketchikan has been called the totem pole capital of the world. Tours show off the city's streets, restored from the pioneer days; the harbor's salmon canneries; and the world's oldest collection of totem poles at the Totem Heritage Center. Sportfishing, kayaking, hiking, bear watching and Misty Fjords seaplane excursions are also popular.
