Waterfront Promenade and Franklin Street

Free admission

Juneau’s historic heart and waterfront hub is Franklin Street, lined with shops, bars and restaurants.

It’s easy to lose hours in Juneau’s gold-rush theme restaurants, old-style taverns and saloons, their clapboard balconies and Victorian-era windows providing vantage points over the waterfront.

Ride the old-style trolley bus promenading up and down Franklin Street, or shop for gold, artifacts and crafts at shops along the waterfront thoroughfare.

Flags waving from businesses lining Franklin Street are a jaunty addition to the scene.

Humpback whale-watching cruises head off from the waterfront, and cruise liners berth here for Alaskan shore adventures.

Nearby Marine Park adds a touch of green, with shade in summer and seating for visitors to rest for a spell.
