阿拉斯加州首府朱诺是阿拉斯加最美丽、游客最多的城市 ， 这里风光无限 ， 您来到朱诺定会满载而归。
朱诺市中心隐匿于朱诺山、罗伯斯山和加斯蒂诺海峡，街道狭窄，犹如迷宫般延伸，不仅有新建筑，也有旧的店面和古色古香的房屋，这些建筑是往昔淘金年代留下的 19 世纪早期建筑。海滨区域停留着无数邮轮、垂钓船只和水上飞机，繁忙地出入港口。没有通往朱诺的公路，因此这里也是美国唯一一个仅能搭乘飞机或船只抵达的州级首府。
朱诺市中心生机勃勃 ， 面积较小 ， 因而很适宜步行 ， 经常受到游客们的赞誉。步行即可抵达邮轮港口是朱诺主要的魅力所在，包括国会建筑、圣尼古拉斯俄国东正教会、若干博物馆和具有历史意义的富兰克林南街，这条街上世纪之交时的建筑如今华丽转身为礼品店、餐厅和酒吧。附近还有朱诺会展和旅游局，可为游客提供信息，展示该市的步行旅游路线图。
该市最具标志性的胜地距离市中心很近 ， 位于居民区边缘处 ， 这就是门登霍尔冰川。这个冰川位于通加斯国家森林内 – 是美国最大的国家性森林 – 来到这里的游客有幸会观看到冰山崩解落入门登霍尔湖的壮观景象，可以远足或是去门登霍尔冰川游客中心查找信息。门登霍尔冰川是 1,500 平方英里朱诺冰原上分布的 38 个大型冰川之一，游客在空中美景之旅中即可欣赏到秀美景色。大多数直升飞机之旅提供登陆冰川、冰川行走和冰川搭乘狗拉雪橇之旅。
赏鲸之旅也是参观该地区形形色色海洋生物的热门方式 ， 包括北海狮、鼠海豚、虎鲸和座头鲸。这些鲸鱼每年夏季都会洄游，捕食磷虾和鲱鱼。大约有 60 头座头鲸经常在朱诺地区出现，因为经常出现，所以许多旅游服务提供商都开展座头鲸观赏之旅，如果座头鲸不出现则退款。
朱诺地区还有一些顶级景点 ， 包括冰川湾国家公园和自然保护区、特蕾西湾 - 福特泰若野外区域和金钟岛国家纪念碑。
夏季里 ， 游客大多数都会乘坐邮轮抵达朱诺 ， 这是因为这里被称为阿拉斯加最美丽的热门港口之一。阿拉斯加航空公司一天内还有多架飞往朱诺的航班，游客可经由阿拉斯加海洋高速公路州立渡轮系统抵达这里。
朱诺之所以如此特别是因为它是阿拉斯加历史最悠久的城市之一。朱诺早在 1898 年克朗代克淘金热之前就已建立，曾经也是金子产地。19 世纪 80 年代，当地的一位特林吉特印第安人领袖带领勘探者乔·朱诺和理查德·哈里斯前往著名的金溪，就是在这里，这两个人发现了地面上的金砖。不久后，小镇就建立了，朱诺是美国从俄罗斯购买阿拉斯加后建立的第一个城市。这个区域后来成为全球最大的硬岩石金矿 - 崔德威尔矿之乡。1906 年，朱诺成为阿拉斯加区域首府，1959 年阿拉斯加更名为州时，朱诺升级为州级首府。
Alaska State Capitol
The Alaska State Capitol was built from 1929-31 and originally served as the territorial federal building. Today it houses the legislative chambers, the governor's office, and offices for staff members who arrive in Juneau for the January-April legislative session. Free 30-minute tours are held every half-hour and start from the visitor desk in the lobby; a self-guided tour pamphlet is also available.
Alaska State Museum
The outstanding Alaska State Museum is the home to more than 23,000 artifacts, works of fine art and natural history and artifacts from Alaska's six major indigenous groups. The most intriguing exhibit, ‘Art of Survival,’ shows how Alaska Natives have turned living in a hostile land into an art form with a display of items, ranging from waterproof gut parkas and a century-old umiaq skin boat to fishing rods.
The top floor is devoted to the state's Russian period and major gold strikes while connecting the two is a circular ramp that winds around the museum's most popular exhibit: an impressive diorama of a full-size eagle's nest in a two-story high tree. If the kids are tagging along, the museum has an interactive children’s room where they can play.
Eaglecrest Ski Area
Located on Douglas Island, Eaglecrest Ski Area
is one of the only municipally run downhill ski areas in the country. Eaglecrest features 640 acres of open-tree terrain with 31 alpine runs, three double chairlifts, eight kilometers of Nordic trails and a terrain park. A comfortable and roomy day lodge includes a rental and repair shop, cafeteria and day lockers. During the summer, visitors return to enjoy one of Juneau’s zip lines.
Glacier Gardens Rainforest Adventure
This 50-acre garden includes ponds, waterfalls and lots of ferns and flowers on the side of Thunder Mountain. At Glacier Gardens Rainforest Adventure visitors hop on motorized carts for a guided tour of the gardens and end up at a viewing point almost 600 feet up the mountain.
Along Calhoun Avenue is the pillared Governor's House, a Greek-Revival-style home that’s easily the most impressive house in Juneau. Built and furnished in 1912 at a cost of $44,000, the mansion is not open to the public but is a popular spot for photos.
Historic South Franklin Street
Just a block from the waterfront is Historic South Franklin Street, a refurbished historical district where many buildings date from the early 1900s and have since been turned into bars, gift shops and restaurants. Nearby is delightful Marine Park where state workers enjoy a sack lunch and tired tourists occasionally take a nap in the sun. Spotting scopes here let visitors search Mount Juneau for mountain goats and an interpretive display provides tips on how to spot them.
Juneau Douglas City Museum
The Juneau Douglas City Museum focuses on gold with interesting mining displays and the excellent documentary video, “Juneau: City Built On Gold,” that focuses on the early history of the city. The museum's seven-foot-long relief map gives visitors a good sense of the rugged terrain that surrounds Alaska’s state capital while local art and displays on Juneau’s maritime history round out the exhibits.
Last Chance Mining Museum
A beautiful half-mile walk along Basin Road from downtown Juneau is the intriguing Last Chance Mining Museum. The former Alaska-Juneau Gold Mining Company complex is now a museum where you can view the remains of the compressor house and examine tools of what was once the world's largest hard-rock gold mine. There is also a recreated mining tunnel and a 3-D glass map of shafts that shows just how large it was. Combine the museum with a hike on nearby Perseverance Trail to more mining ruins and make an afternoon of it.
Macaulay Salmon Hatchery
Visitors and especially kids love the Macaulay Salmon Hatchery. The hatchery has huge seawater aquariums loaded with local marine life, from tanner crabs to octopus, while the interpretive displays explaining the life cycle of salmon are museum quality. An underwater viewing window and a 450-foot fish ladder allow children to witness, from July to September, the amazing the sight of thousands of salmon fighting their way upstream to spawn.
Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center
Juneau’s most popular attraction is Mendenhall Glacier, Alaska’s famous drive-in glacier. The river of ice flows 12 miles from its source, the Juneau Icefield, and has a 1.5-mile-wide face. On a sunny day it’s beautiful, with blue skies and snowcapped mountains in the background. On a cloudy and drizzly afternoon, it can be even more impressive, as the ice turns shades of deep blue.
Near the face of the glacier is the USFS Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center, which houses various glaciology exhibits, a large relief map of the icefield, an observatory with telescopes and a theater that shows the film, “Magnificent Mendenhall.” Outside you’ll find black bear and salmon-viewing platforms overlooking Steep Creek, as well as six hiking trails, ranging from a 0.3-mile photo-overlook trail to a trek of several miles up the glacier’s west side.
Mount Roberts Tramway
From the heart of Juneau, visitors can soar to new heights with a ride on the Mount Roberts Tramway
. Gondolas carry visitors above the city where spectacular scenery, Native culture and art, and even shopping and dining awaits them. Most of all the tramway provides easy access to great hiking above the tree line for a better view.
Founded in 1979 and located in Douglas, Perseverance Theatre is Alaska’s only full-time professional theater company. Among the plays that premiered at the Perseverance was “The Mineola Twins” in 1996. It went on to gain national acclaim and win playwright Paula Vogel a Pulitzer Prize. The theater season runs from September to May.
Saint Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church
Built in 1893 against the backdrop of Mount Juneau, the onion-domed Saint Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church is the oldest original and continuously used church in the Inside Passage. From a small gift shop filled with nesting dolls and other handcrafted items from Russia, you enter the church where, among the original vestments and religious icons, a row of painted saints stare down at you. Playing softly in the background are the chants from a service.
Juneau has several salmon bakes that provide great food with an outdoor experience conveying the flavor of frontier Alaska. Most offer an all-you-can-eat dinner of grilled salmon, halibut and ribs along with a salad bar, corn, baked beans and, just in case you’re still hungry, dessert. Some double up as a salmon bake and flightseeing tour to view glaciers on the way to dinner.
Both day trips and extended sea kayak outings are possible out of Juneau with companies offering rentals for those who arrive without a boat. Easy trips include Mendenhall Lake, where kayakers paddle among the icebergs in this relatively calm body of water, and around the islands of Auke Bay. Longer trips range from Taku Inlet for close views of Taku Glacier to the protected waters of Berners Bay, where kayakers can reserve and stay in U.S. Forest Service cabins.
Shrine of Saint Therese
Located out the road from Juneau, at Mile 23.3 Glacier Highway, is the Shrine of Saint Therese, a natural stone chapel on an island connected to the shore by a stone spit. Stations of the cross and a small stone church sit on the small island. Church-owned cabins are available for rent on the shore nearby.
Tracy Arm Cruises
Tracy Arm is sheer-sided fjord, 50 miles southeast of Juneau, with a pair of tidewater glaciers at the head of it and a gallery of icebergs floating down its length. The fjord is a designated federal wilderness and a boat cruise to it makes a fascinating day trip from Juneau. You're almost guaranteed to see seals inside the arm, and you might spot whales on the way there. Pack a jacket and binoculars to look for a wide array of wildlife, from bald eagles to orcas. Two thundering glaciers and all those icebergs provide a breathtaking scene.
Whale Watching Tours
The humpback whale watching in nearby Lynn Canal is so good that some tour operators will refund your money if you don't see at least one. Whale watching tours depart from Auke Bay and most tours last three to four hours.
Zip Line Tours
Surrounded by mountains and towering rainforests, Juneau was made for zip lines. Operators are more than happy to harness you up and let you fly through 100-foot trees like an eagle looking for a salmon. The wild adventures include everything from sky bridges zigzagging across a stream to a 40-foot rappel down a Sitka spruce.
