Visitor believes no road limits tourists' options

Letter to the editor

Posted: Sunday, November 02, 2003

As a two-time visitor to Juneau and from a tourist's point of view, you people really need a road to the outside world. The ferry's a pain in the butt and, let's face it, if you're not fishing or hiking there's not really much to do here for tourists. So I can see why there's only 30,000 people here.

Don't get me wrong; it's also very nice in Juneau, but I became burned out after only two days. A road would give a lot more people access and Juneau would become the jumping off place for the rest of Alaska instead of Haines and Skagway.
