Concierge.com's insider take:
Juneau is the only U.S. state capital where you can't directly drive to another city but you can drive to a glacier. On the edge of the Gastineau Channel in Southeast, with the expansive Juneau Icefields behind and the Mendenhall Glacier flowing right into a suburb, it's easy to figure Juneau became the state's seat of government because it's just too beautiful to pass by. Whales swim right past town, and day-tripping families head to Tracy Arm, a more intimate version of Glacier Bay. Thanks to its size (largest town in Southeast) and the government offices, Juneau has swanker hotels and restaurants than other towns in the region, as well as regional favorites like Silverbow (best place in Alaska for breakfast) and the Capital Inn. Juneau also has the area's only ski resort, Eaglecrest.—Edward Readicker-Henderson
