Fodor's Review

In a nod to the area's maritime history—and the nearly one million cruise ship passengers who flock to the Capital City every summer—Juneau's colorful visitor center was designed by local architects to resemble a ship's transom. The building, which sits next to the cruise ship dock at the southern end of the waterfront Seawalk, is clad in iridescent stainless steel shingles. Reminiscent of the scales of a fish, they change color depending on your angle of view. The center has complete details on Juneau sights and activities, plus walking-tour maps and a guide to local trails. Visitor information is also available at kiosks at Marine Park and at ferry terminal.
