We visited Ketchikan as a cruise stop. There is a free shuttle bus at the cruise port that stops at various locations around town, including across from Creek St. Just go to a crosswalk, and then enjoy the charm. Good photo opportunity of the picturesque...More

This really is a beautiful spot. Good location to shop-hop in and out of the rain. The stores are touristy, of course, but not as garish as the ones near the docks. No admission, no tour required. The nearby New York Cafe is a good...More

This is a nice place to meander the area. If you like small shops this place is full of them. People are friendly, and there is much to take in.

This a nice restored area of Ketchikan with many small shops. There are a few nice art shops and many tourist shops along a boardwalk with the creek running beside it.

Come on, they have cruises ships 4 months a year, they need the money when you come in. I don't fault them for the staged atmosphere. Go and visit and have fun but know it for what it is.

Like a lot of attractions/towns on the Inside Passage Cruise, it is something out of the Disney backlot of 1950's gold rush era westerns. Another tourist rip off.

We had planned the Alaska cruise for years, and one of the things I had most looked forward to was Creek Street in Ketchikan. Two problems: we went in May... but the salmon (one of the things you want to see at Creek Street) don't...More

I really liked Creek Street. The water was a beautiful green. The photographs do not do the creek justice. It is much prettier seeing it in person. Usually, it is the other way around. It is a short walk and not too far from the...More

Take your time, read all the signs, go into all the shops, take a moment and look back at what it must have been like. The tour of Dolly's house was well worth it and I especially loved Sam McGee's shop, they have some killer...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.

Is it preferable to book a tour for Creek Street or can you do it independently? Thanks

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.
