Creek Street is one of those locations that every visitor to Ketchikan will find themselves. It's a quaint little village of old buildings built along a beautiful river. Lots of shops of both the interesting "made in Alaska" and the "made in China while pretending...More

Quaint "Street" along the creek filled with a variety of tourist type shops as well as local artisans in a variety of styles. The local art is quite good.

An interesting quick trip with some interesting signs about the history but it doesn't take long to look around and most of the shops sell the same thing. Just round the corner is a salmon ladder that during the salmon run can be extremely cool...More

While strolling through Ketchikan, we were getting frustrated with all the "tourist traps" right by the dock. How many t-shirt stores can you visit in one vacation? That is not why I wanted to visit Alaska. Thankfully, we made our way up to Creek Street....More

The boardwalks and the stream were nice (apart from all the dead salmon) but the shops and galleries were a bit of a tourist trap. That said, it was very popular, with hoards of visitors from the cruise ships milling around. If you walk a...More

Of course not. No one in Alaska eats doughnuts. Only seafood here. You can get bagels and lox and maybe a little cream cheese, much better than doughnuts. And of course anything made from sour dough.

You definitely can do it independently. But you might enjoy tidbits a tour guide might offer about the location. Its within about a half mile of the cruise ship docking area. We had no tour. Very easily accessed.
