12. Root for your favorite axe-man at the Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show
The Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show is one of the main attractions in the south Alaskan port of Ketchikan. Though it may feel heavily scripted at times, it’s still fun to root for the team they assign to you (go Canada!) and watch up close all the various lumberjack activities—axe throwing, log rolling, tandem sawing and so on. As they say, yo-ho!
13. Take a stroll through the Creek Street Historical District
It’s also enjoyable to leisurely stroll around Ketchikan’s Creek Street Historical District and get a glimpse of what Alaska life looked like during the frontier days.
14. Savor some of the best fish and chips ever at Alava’s Fish-n-Chowder
Another Alaskan port, another meal of amazing seafood that completely steals the show. This time, it’s Alava’s Fish-n-Chowder and their perfectly prepared fish and chips that totally made my day.
