Travel Blogs from Juneau
Juneau has a population of approximately 33,000. Federal, state and local government employs four out of every ten Juneau workers. I found this figure really interesting as I have to say Juneau is the only city I have visited, that I have taken photos of display boards in the toilet!

Surrounded by calm water, steep wooded hills and peaking snow topped mountains, this has to be one of the prettiest settings for a state capital anywhere in the U.S. However downtown Juneau has to be one of the ugliest towns I have ever seen! Something that looks like a VERY low budget western movie set! Our rep on board told us that, being currently single, she ...
