Located in the Gastineau Channel and the Alaskan panhandle, it is a unified municipality and the second-largest city in the United States by area. Juneau was named the capital of Alaska in 1906, when the government of what was then the District of Alaska was moved from Sitka as dictated by the U.S. Congress in 1900. The municipality unified on July 1, 1970, when the city of Juneau merged with the city of Douglas and the surrounding Greater Juneau Borough to form the current municipality, which is larger by area than both Rhode Island and Delaware.

Glacier Bay National Park itinerary, Auke Bay
 0     11     30     10
  Duration: 3 hrs

“Boy Scout Beach is the perfect combination of accessible and remote. This beach is located at mile 25 ‘Out the Road’ north of Auke Bay and the 2-mile hike in along the Herbert River means that the beach is just remote enough that it is never crowded but not so remote you can’t head out for a spontaneous afternoon trip. Make sure you know where you're going, though! The trailhead is located in a cul de sac off of the Glacier Highway. There are several turnoffs in the area and cell reception is spotty so be sure to download the map before you leave town. Once you’re there, Boy Scout Beach is a huge, sandy delta that gives you views of both the Coastal and Chilkat mountain ranges. Of all the beaches in Juneau, Boy Scout Beach gets the most sun which makes it a popular spot on summer solstice. The best part? I’ve seen humpbacks or orcas every time I’ve been there.” — Ben Rubenstein, Destination Marketing Coordinator, Travel Juneau
