There’s no prettier capital in the country than Alaska’s Juneau, whose historic downtown clings to a mountainside beneath snowcapped peaks and its narrow streets lead you past a bustling waterfront. The rest of the city spreads north into the Mendenhall Valley. Juneau is also Alaska’s cruise-ship capital and the gateway to many attractions, including Glacier Bay National Park and Admiralty Island National Monument.
