Juneau resident warns: Be wary of too many cruise ships
July 13, 2022
Be careful what you wish for. I hope the large cruise ship operations never “discover” Wrangell. Downtown Juneau is like New Orleans’ Bourbon Street. Crowded and noisy, indiscriminate COVID spreaders. My downtown neighborhood is overrun by tourist vehicles — one day in June saw 499 trips through our narrow streets.
Wrangell and the Stikine River are world-class destinations. Major cruise lines will make a Disneyland out of your paradise.
