Now that you guys helped me find my hat, I need a good bar that's not a tourist trap (if there is such a thing). Just a quiet place to enjoy a beer or 3 before I get back on the ship.
The ships bars a quiet in port
Yep...probably don't serve the local beer you'll find in a Ketchikan bar, but they're only about6 each, and I can rub elbows with some genuine tourists.
LOL, good luck
Ketchikan was once the beer bar capital of Alaska, but the tourist trade took over with all the cruise ships, so now it is hard to find many local bars but more a mix of tourists. The Arctic Bar may not be quiet but more locals show up here than other bars in town. I mentioned this bar in your Alaskan hat quest. http://www.arcticbar.com/
Thanks. I'll have to stop in there to at least check that hat out. Don't think the Missus would want to be seen with me if I wore it though.
Fat Stan's is a good one - located near the logging show. Often see the mayor there :)
