Need advice on Sitka


I've been to Alaska many times but never to Sitka. I'm thinking about flying from Portland to Sitka on June 18, and then flying from Sitka to Fairbanks on June 21 to watch the Midnight Sun baseball game before flying home. Is 3 days a good amount of time to enjoy Sitka? Should I rent a car? I'm into photography, wildlife viewing and history, and hope to enjoy all 3 when I'm there. Thanks for any help you can provide!

We rented a car when we visited Sitka over 25 years ago. The roads extended seven miles in either direction. From what I remember three days is plenty. The restauant there that had the best viiews was McDonald's.

Sitka offers lots in terms of history and culture.

I suggest you download the local visitors guide to see what interests you.

I found the Sheldon Jackson museum well worth a visit.
