Previously in Ketchikan we would rent a vehicle (I have another post on that) However this time, we had a very short port day so we did not do any excursions. On a short day like this, it is a great day to walk back to see the fish ladder. Keep a lookout for eagles, and maybe spot a seal at the bridge! Ketchikan is also a great place to shop for souvenirs because there are so many shops. However there is a free shuttle to Walmart from the discovery center and souvenirs are definitely the cheapest there! Plus you can stock up on anything you may need!
Catch the free Walmart shuttle from the discovery center. It runs every 10-15 mins
Points of interest
Married Man's Trail
Walk the married mans trails back to the salmon ladder and most likely get a great view of some eagles!
Take Creek st to get to the salmon ladder and walk along the water the whole way!
Great place to grab souvenirs for a good price, or get some affordable snacks for the day!
