If you enjoy history, make sure to visit St. Michael's (Russian Orthodox) Cathedral. Sitka was the Russian "capitol" in North America, and there is still quite an influence on the culture. The Russian Bishop's House, which is part of the National Park Service, is interesting to tour; it's not usually included on shore excursions but is walking distance to downtown and can easily be toured on your own, for a small admission charge.
