Juneau isn't just a place to live ... it's a place to experience
When you arrive in Alaska’s capital, you know you’ve come to a different place. For starters, there are no roads to Juneau … you arrive by boat or airplane. Maybe it is this isolation that gives those who live here a sense of community and a sense of oneness with our natural surroundings.
Built along Gastineau Channel in Alaska’s southeast panhandle, Juneau shines like a diamond sitting at the foot of Mt. Juneau and Mt. Roberts. Facing communities of Douglas, West Juneau and North Douglas on Douglas Island across the channel, it spreads along the base of the mountains from Thane to the south, then continues north into the Mendenhall Valley, home of the famous Mendenhall Glacier, and farther “out the road” past Auke Bay.
