Juneau has so many fun things to do all year round. Whether you’re an adventurous, outdoor person, or shopping and seeing a play indoors is more your style, there’s always something to go out and do! Since it’s currently winter, lets focus on some of the fun things you can do during these cold months.
1. Eaglecrest Ski Area: Head up to the mountain for some down-hill skiing, snowboarding or cross-country skiing. This is a great family activity and if you’re not feeling up to skiing or snowboarding, they have a great lodge to sit and sip hot coco while the kids burn off some energy!
2. Heli-Skiing: If you’re a little more of an adrenaline junky, you can take it to the next level by taking a short helicopter ride and ski or snowboard where no one else has! You can do a half-day, full-day or even several day package trips. For more information on heli-skiing, go to http://alaskapowder.com/ .
3. Juneau Arts & Humanities Council: Juneau has a very rich arts and culture scene. Go to http://www.jahc.org/ to check out some of the many concerts, plays, and other art events going on around town all year long.
4. Shopping and Dining: Downtown Juneau has an abundance of amazing shops where you can buy hand-made items, clothes, shoes, jewelry, art, and SO much more!
