Both Juneau and Ketchican are hilly - we walked around both towns. Not hard walks, but be aware if anyone has mobility issues. The tram in Juneau is an easy walk from the pier. It was really enjoyable, although we didn't do it until later in the day, and it was getting dark so we didn't get to do any hiking at the top of the mountain. We didn't go into the saloon - by the time we got back down to the dock area, two more ships had arrived and it was packed.... not our scene. The state museum in Juneau was wonderful. We took a bus up to the Russian church, and walked back downtown. We snooped around the state building, found a thrift store, checked out the grocery store and a great Mexican restaurant on a back street. We also just wandered around Ketchican - but we have heard the trip to the Totem Pole village is a nice trip.
