There is no road to the Alaskan capital, Juneau. This is the only reason why it is a relatively non-traditional location. You can get here either by boat or by plane. It is located on a mainland promontory in the south of the state and is separated from the Pacific Ocean by a network of islands. Despite its remoteness, Juneau is a popular and attractive tourist destination with a large selection of interesting natural sites, which is clearly dominated by the Mendenhall Glacier (about 20 kilometers northwest of Juneau).
