I am planning to fly from Anchorage to Juneau, and then stay overnight and then go to the bay to take the day trip cruise... can I get around city without having to rent a car?
Juneau has better public transport than most Alaskan towns. Downtown is all fairly close. The airport is about 8 miles north of town and I've never taken the bus from there, although have seen them plenty of times. Cab ride from airport to downtown is about12.
There are some new (and cheaper) hotels close by the airport, but then you still need to get downtown to see the sights.
Mendenhall Glacier is close to the airport and buses run out to it hourly.
