JUNEAU: We only have one (1) hour between tours before we have to board the ship. Does the ship dock close enough to town so that we can walk go shopping and get back in time for our tour. Any tips on shopping or things to see in the town of Juneau. THanks

This dock is downtown, but the far dock has quite a walk. There is some shopping very close by. So yes you will have time for some shopping.

any suggestions on stores to shop or what to buy.

Even the far dock has a shuttle that will drop you at the main shopping district (tram parking lot). Be sure and get some of the fudge at the Alaska Fudge shop. Ketchikan, Skagway and Juneau all have fudge shops with different recipes, so a fun thing is to comparison shop fudge. Beyond that it really depends on what you're looking for. If you're looking for little knick-knacks, tee-shirts, things to take back to the kids or co-workers then try the Alaska Shirt Compnay, right across from the tram. After that the sky's the limit (literally there are some $50,000 art pieces for sale). Lots of art galleries, lots of jewelry, doll shop, jade shop, Russian shop, Tropics shop, Irish shop, native crafts your choice,
