Tour Overview


Ketchikan Pub Walking Tour
Quench your thirst with a walking tour that includes stops at some of Ketchikan's most popular pubs. Created by lifelong Alaskan Shauna Lee, whose strong female family members worked in these once rough-and-tumble watering holes, you'll get the inside scoop on the wild and rugged days of this historic town. From the pier, you'll follow your guide to several locations including a stroll down Creek Street, once the home of more than 30 brothels. Hear infamous stories of days gone by such as the prohibition era when the red-light district was in full swing, and the colorful history of Ketchikan's most popular hot spots. Enjoy a sampler beverage at each location and at your final stop, you'll be treated to live music.

Downtown's centerpiece is Creek Street, said to be the most photographed street in Alaska. Now populated with shops and art galleries, Creek Street was once the red-light district with more than 30 brothels.

Perched on pilings along the shores of Ketchikan Creek, historic Creek Street is home to Dolly's House Museum, totem poles, and spawning salmon (in mid-July through September).
