Traveling with children and seeing the world through their eyes can be an amazing experience. Each new place you visit there’s something else for them to explore and new adventures for the whole family.
But one of the challenges with traveling with children is transportation. Flying with car seats, strollers and luggage is stressful. By the time you reach your destination, it might feel like you just need to rest for several days to recover from flying as a family.
One way to simplify this is to stay at the best hotel in Juneau that enables you to walk everywhere with your children. You’ll probably still want to fly with a stroller but walking Juneau instead of driving is one way you can simplify your travels.
When you arrive at Juneau Hotel, take the family for a short walk to Juneau Convention & Visitors Bureau. It’s only about a quarter of a mile away and a great opportunity to get to know downtown Juneau.
The Visitors Bureau offers maps of the area as well as information on local attractions, places to eat and how to navigate the city. You’ll also find a wealth of information on the Travel Juneau website.
And if you aren’t too tired from your travels and getting settled into Juneau Hotel, take the Juneau Seawalk on your way back from the Visitors Bureau. You’ll get a fantastic view of the seaside as you start to see all Juneau has to offer.
Armed with maps and information, you’re now ready to start your walking tour. We’ve split it up into two days to limit walking to about two miles per day.
Break for lunch! You’ve walked a little more than a mile at this point with your little ones. You’re nearby V Cellar Door a Mexican-Korean restaurant. Or visit Kitchen of Thai Curries for Thai food or In Bocca al Lupo for Italian food.
Call it a day and head to dinner! You can see the rest of downtown Juneau tomorrow but be sure to not overdo it with kids. As you head back toward Juneau Hotel, swing by TK Maguire’s for dinner. You’ll love the atmosphere and they have a great menu for kids. Or for a quick bite and casual environment, visit Raven Café. You’ll also find Zen Asian Fusion Cuisine and Mar y Sol Mexican Food on your way back to the hotel.
After a relaxing evening in the hotel, you’re ready for another day of sightseeing on foot! Here’s how to navigate day 2 of your Juneau walking tour with kids.
Pause and enjoy lunch. You’re nearby some neat places the whole family will love. Consider Deckhand Dave’s
You’ve reached the end of your walking tour. From the USS Juneau Memorial, it’s a 1.3-mile walk. Consider stopping for dinner on your way back.
