Your visit to Ketchikan is not complete without a stroll down Creek Street. Follow Ketchikan Creek by some of the nicest shops in town. We saw a seal playing in the creek. There will be plenty of photo opportunities. Enjoy.

This is worth seeing from a historical perspective (there are information signs on many buildings), but be prepared for crowds from the cruise ships!

Interesting heritage buildings along the creek away from the main business section. Gets a little busy as the cruisers fan out

Creek Street was very quaint, and you could get an idea of what it might have been like in the past. A good selection of stores.

Lots of little independent shops and museums. Managed to take the obligatory photo underneath the sign. The street is built on a wooden platform over the river. Saw lots of salmon and even a seal in the river. Enjoyed spending time here.

I totally liked the Creek Street, although we did not have too much time to see it as our Cruise Ship was leaving in the early afternoon and we did another tour before. However, the time was sufficient to walk around the street and to...More

Creek Street was absolutely lovely when I encountered it early in the morning! No salespersons, no tourists, just myself and the beautiful creek! I enjoyed reading the historical markers on the buildings, and watching the salmon work their way up the creek!

We enjoyed our visit to Creek Street. We watched the salmon, we saw a seal- we shopped the creek street shops. The shop keepers were very nice and not pushy.

If you use your imagination, you can picture what this "red light district" might have been back in the day. As it is, the buildings are now filled with arts and craft type souvenir shops. Pretty small area, so easy to cover in a short...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.
