We were just in Icy Strait and we really enjoyed the walk into town. It takes about half an hour and they now have a very wide gravel path off the road by the water. Keep an eye out for whales for the towns people said they see them all the time. There is not much to the town but we love to just wander. Make sure you stop at the Ace hardware store that is out over the water. Its one of the first things you come to. The manager Steve is sure to say hello and will tell anything you want to know. In fact the best thing about Icy Strait is the people. They are very friendly and love to share stories about their beautiful home.
