5 Attractions We Checked Out in Juneau, Alaska

We had approximately ten hours in Juneau, Alaska. There were only two places that for me was a must see – Mendenhall Glacier and Mount Roberts Tramway. For my husband, the State Capitol was also a must. My sisters-in-law were just happy to tag along. We ended up checking 5 places and do some shopping. I’ll list the places we visited on today’s blog with photos and will feature each separately in future posts.

1. Mendenhall Glacier is Alaska’s most accessible glacier. It stretches for over 1 1/2 miles wide. 

  
2. Mount Roberts Tramway takes visitors up 1800 feet on Mount Roberts where they could gaze at the scenic views of Juneau.

  
3. Alaska State Capitol is, according to our bus driver/tour guide to Mendenhall Glacier, the 50th most beautiful Capitol in the United States. 😄

  
4. St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church is Southeast Alaska’s oldest continuously operating church.

  
5. Cathedral of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary is home to Juneau’s Catholic parishioners. We stopped by as one of my sisters-in-law is an avid churchgoer.

  
Except for the trip to Mendenhall Glacier which is located out of town, we walked to the attractions we visited. After seeing the places on the list, we had plenty of time to shop before going back to the ship.
