On your next trip to Juneau make sure to consider employing our Juneau car hire services as your main means of transportation through Alaska’s capital. It should be noted straight away that Juneau cannot be reached by car because that entire region of Alaska is located between the coastal mountain range and the Pacific Ocean and this makes the construction of roads extremely expensive and during some parts of the year impossible.
The Juneau Airport is located at about seven miles from the center of town and serves the entire region as an air travel hub. You can employ our Juneau car rental services to have a car of your choice ready and waiting for you at the airport as soon as you land.
The only other way of reaching Juneau is by sea since it is a main port on the Alaskan coast. This means that it is also an important port of call for cruise ships which bring with them many visitors between the months of May and September.
Despite its rather secluded location, if you’re visiting there you will not be devoid of things to see, both man-made and natural.
The Alaska State Museum offers some of the state’s best exhibits which cover the entire history of Alaska, including information about native cultures, wildlife, art and industry.
The Saint Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church was built in 1893, a tiny but ornate octagonal structure built by the Tlingits – an indigenous people.
The Alaska State Capitol was completed in 1931 but is a bit special from other state capitols as it does not feature the same type of imposing architecture.
When it comes to natural attractions there’s the Mendenhall Glacier which is a massive one and a half wide glacier. There is a Visitor Center which offers a great view of the glacier and is very informative. There is also a special trail called the West Glacier trail which will lead you up to the glacier, however this is an activity best left to the more adventurous.
These are only a few of the things that you can see and do while in Juneau so make sure to employ our Juneau car hire services in order to better experience this unique state capital.
