Want to learn about a place? Drink with locals! This fun, informative and entertaining walking tour is sure to please anyone who wishes to get off the beaten path and immerse themselves in the culture of Alaska’s First City. Ketchikan is famous for “doing business at the bar” and you’ll learn why as you hear infamous stories of days gone by, the prohibition era when the red-light district was in full swing and the colorful history of Ketchikan’s most popular hot spots. You’ll enjoy a sampler beverage at several of Alaska’s most historic pubs, meet the genuine characters who make Ketchikan unique and enjoy a stroll down historic Creek Street to the local cabaret.
After some live music at the cabaret, you will then get picked up and take a scenic drive to the rustic yet elegant, George Inlet Lodge for an all-you-can-eat crab feast. Rounding out the menu are baby red potatoes, fresh oriental salad, and a delicious, smooth cheesecake with Alaskan blueberry toppings for dessert. The history of this magnificent lodge that was once an old cannery will inspire you with the story how it was moved across the ocean to its current location. There is no doubt the pristine coastal setting and the friendly staff at the George Inlet Lodge will deliver an Alaskan experience that will not soon be forgotten. Last but not least, check out the gift shop for a special souvenir for your trip.
