Nice meander along the street to see past era. Many small shops to look at, views to water. Interesting information on boards outside many buildings to give you story of the past inhabitants. Nice to fill in time in Ketchikan.

Lovely walk on a pleasant sunny say, a little retro, wonderful artisan shops, nice views. Before or after a tour, it should not be missed.

Not much to see. Under construction. City had it all blocked off. It was really a mess. Nothing was open. Since many photos in advertisements feature this area, we were very disappointed.

Great photo opportunity, cute alaskan buildings. Lots of shopping and touring to do on this street. Always something going on, on Creek Street. Extremely busy when the cruise ships are docked for the day, keep that in mind when planning your trip here.

Creek Street is a narrow little strip that hugs the river and is lined with souvenir shops. It's pretty enough, but there's not a whole lot besides being on the water that it has going for it. Worth walking down if you have time to...More
