Brought to you by Historic Ketchikan and one of Ketchikan’s oldest businesses, Pioneer Printing Co., Inc. The Historic Ketchikan Walking Tour introduces you to the community’s premier historic sites and wildlife. Here in the First City we've got the most historic properties out of any community in Alaska, so there's a lot to look at during your visit!
This is the way to see Ketchikan, walking at one’s own pace from one historic highlight to the next. Either grab one of our printed maps (stop by the Visitor's Center) or download the app and start exploring!
The Downtown Tour's attractions range from museums to historic churches, Native totem poles, the red-light district and wooden streets from days of old. Lots of places to eat and shop along the way. Be sure to bring your camera in case you see one of the many eagles, ravens, black bears, seals, deer, martens, and other wildlife sharing the island!
