During our last visit to Juneau, it was mid-June with our family. The weather was so hot, and I recall that we all dressed light. Today it was wet, windy and cold. Even then Juneau is beautiful and the two of us enjoyed walking to the shopping areas.
With 5 cruise ships visiting Juneau, the streets, stores and restaurants were packed with tourists.
One of the servers mentioned to us that she went to do her shopping at an outlet designated for cruise ship staffs. She also went to eat at a cafeteria which is for staffs from cruise ships. That makes a lot of sense. Most of the tourist stores and restaurants are selling name brands at exorbitant prices. For those cruise staffs who are seeking for inexpensive but authentic items from Alaska the outlets can easily make up with volume.
