One of the quickest ways to get a view of Juneau is to take the Mount Roberts Tramway. In just a few minutes the tramway takes you 1,800 feet above Downtown Juneau and the Gastineau Channel. From the top you are treated to views down the channel, across to Douglas Island as well as north towards the airport and Chilkat Mountains. You can also hike up and take the tram down for a small fee as well.
Just one of the many places where I found myself Discovering Juneau.
