Ketchikan, Alaska
This coastal Alaska town is charming, rustic and surprisingly thin.

Yes, you read that last one right. Ketchikan stretches for 31 miles along the shoreline of the Inside Passage, but the community is never more than 10 blocks wide. That makes the topography of this small city long and very narrow.

Back–dropped by heavily forested mountains, many homes and businesses here are actually built on stilts out over the water. And if you're cruising north, Ketchikan will likely be the first city you reach.

After disembarking, stroll along the historic Creek Street – a boardwalk lined with quaint shops and compelling views. When it’s time to dine, seek out some of the finest seafood restaurants in town: the halibut, salmon, and crab here are amazing.

Delve into the native culture at the Totem Heritage Center or learn more about the Alaska wilderness at the Southeast Alaska Discovery Center. Then head just 10–15 minutes outside of town to explore the pristine outdoors – including some great spots to see bears. This video will tell you more about shore excursions in Ketchikan.
