Juneau, Alaska Shore Excursion

 

Juneau, Alaska - A Do-It-Yourself Shore Excursion going up the Mt. Roberts Tramway to Mt. Roberts and Twisted Fish Alaskan Grill
Juneau, Alaska – A Do-It-Yourself Shore Excursion

The second port on our Alaskan Cruise was Juneau, Alaska and we opted for a do-it-yourself shore excursion instead of one booked through the cruise line. The weather was clear, warm and sunny, making it the perfect day to take the Mt. Roberts Tramway up 1800 feet to the top of Mt. Roberts.

Mount Roberts Tramway

Tickets and entrance to the Tramway are a short distance through the shopping district near the port. It’s an easy walk. We boarded the gondola at the base of the mountain and had a smooth, 5-minute ride up 1800 feet to the top of Mt. Roberts. The views of the Gastineau Channel and surrounding areas were stunning.

When you get to the top of Mt. Roberts, there is much to see and do for the whole family.   All facilities and hiking trails are ADA accessible.

  • Stop at the Nature Center (more like a gift shop with all types of books and gifts related to Alaska’s natural habitat) and pick up your hiking guide.
  • Take a hike! The hiking trails are beautifully maintained with scenic overlooks at many points along the way.

Foliage

  • Visit Lady Baltimore, the beautiful bald eagle at the Juneau Raptor Center.
  • Pick up souvenirs, clothing and one of kind pieces of art at the Raven Eagle Gifts and Gallery.
  • Enjoy fresh Alaskan seafood and locally brewed beer at the Timberline Atop Mt. Roberts.

Twisted Fish Company Alaskan Grill

Twisted Fish

It was dinner time when we came down from Mt. Roberts and we were determined to have some King Crab Legs while we were in Alaska. About ½ a block from the Tramway on the waterfront is Twisted Fish Company Alaskan Grill. Our party enjoyed the DELICIOUS King Crab Legs, but there are plenty of options – all kinds of seafood, steaks, burgers, pizza and other casual fare. It was the perfect ending to our do-it-yourself shore excursion in Juneau!

Five Best Shows To Watch On Netflix

5 Best Shows to Watch On Netflix are Aquarius, Narcos, Bloodline, Flaked and Fundamentals of Caring
5 Best Shows To Watch On Netflix

The Olympics will end today. After that, good shows to watch on TV will be “slim-pickins”  until the networks roll out their new shows and old favorites for the Fall season. To fill in the gap, here are the 5 best shows to watch on Netflix (in my opinion).

The Olympics are over. Here are my Netflix picks to tide you over until TV's fall season begins. Click To Tweet

Aquarius

Aquarius stars David Duchovny (X-files & Californication) as LAPD Det. Sam Hodiak in this period drama set in 1960’s Los Angeles.  Charles Manson, crime, pop culture, romance, suspense – everything you need for a great binge watch!

Narcos

Narcos is the story DEA agents who are pursuing notorious drug Kingpin Pablo Escobar (Wagner Moura) in 1970’s & 80’s Columbia. Cocaine has become the drug of choice in the US and no matter what DEA Agents Murphy (Boyd Holbrook) & Pena (Pedro Pascal) do, Escobar’s empire keeps growing. Another great period piece with well-developed characters and addicting storyline.

Bloodline

Bloodline is a family drama starring hunky Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights) as  Det. John Rayburn. Rayburn is one of four siblings in a prominent family in this small Florida Keys town.  Things are going along just fine until his black sheep brother, played by Ben Mendelsohn comes back, dredging up hidden family secrets and wreaking havoc in the lives of the Rayburn siblings. Also starring Cissy Spacek and Sam Shepard as the matriarch and patriarch of this dysfunctional family.

Flaked

Flaked is a quirky dramedy starring Will Arnett (Arrested Development) set it Venice, California. It’s the story of Chip, a recovering alcoholic, and his friends in this surfer-type town who wrestle with their pasts, romantic triangles, and recovery. I found this series both funny and endearing.

Fundamentals of Caring

Fundamentals of Caring is a movie, not a series starring Paul Rudd as Ben.  After a series of losses, Ben takes the job as a caregiver to 18-year-old Trevor who is confined to a wheelchair with Muscular Dystrophy. To broaden Trevor’s horizons,  Ben takes him on a road trip, where they both grow, wrestle with their painful pasts and come home with a new sense of bravery and purpose.
