Ketchikan, Alaska

Ketchikan is known as Alaska's Native Cultural Center. It is also known as the salmon capital of the world and a paradise for sport fishermen and naturalists alike. During the summer months, the town bustles with visitors from all over the world.

Ketchikan is built along a steep hillside, with sections of the town built right over the water on pilings. The rustic boardwalk on Creek Street preserves a distinct historic feel, while the town hums with new construction to keep up with tourism.

Native art and culture flourish here due to the large population of Native Alaskans, represented by three indigenous tribes: the Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian.

Ketchikan has the largest collection of totem poles in the world, and has been recognized as one of the top 100 arts communities in America. Visitors will find an outstanding variety of shops, galleries and boutiques throughout the town.
