Really enjoyed walking Creek Street. Looks exactly how I pictured it would have been in the days of the gold miners...with the brothel and all the shops! Was there in June so didn't see the salmon but the weather was gorgeous!

Well worth a walk through Creek street, you can almost feel how it was back then. Too bad we didn't see any salmon, wrong timing too early, visited Ketchikan beginning of June. The many men that visited that area in the early 1900's are replaced by the many tourists now. :-)

It was great to see all of the salmon in the salmon ladders. Sad to see so many dead ones in the stream. Great to see the old part of town. Nice to find something free to do!

We loved walking on Creek Street. We were able to see real, authentic souvenirs and interact with the shop keepers. Walking along Creek Street was very pleasant.

Bring your camera and walk beyond the shops on the way to the salmon ladder. There is a section of boardwalk along the creek where we watched seals chase and catch salmon. This was in the afternoon at low tide, and the harbor seals were catching salmon, playing and floating on their backs. Our visit was in September at the... More

Unfortunately, the water levels were very low when we were there, so the ladder wasn't in use, but we did see the salmon... More
