Fodor's Review

Constructed as part of a long-range waterfront improvement plan, Juneau's Seawalk currently runs from Marine Park down to the end of South Franklin Street. Plans call for it to extend farther north to the Juneau–Douglas Bridge. The Seawalk provides a calmer pedestrian alternative to the narrow, crowded sidewalks of South Franklin Street; its rewards include beautiful views of Gastineau Channel and Douglas Island. Cruise ships and local boats operate in this area, so be prepared to sidestep disembarking passengers. One section passes between the Taku Smokeries fish-processing plant and an offloading dock for fishermen, allowing an occasional glimpse of an industry that remains an important part of Alaskan life.
