By Rental Car -- A car is a hindrance in compact downtown Juneau, but if you're going to any of the attractions out the road or on Douglas Island, renting a car for a day or two is a good idea. Hertz, Avis, Budget, Alamo, and National are based at the airport.

By Bike -- If you can handle hills, bikes make good sense in Juneau, where separated paths parallel many of the main roads and downtown traffic is slow. The 24-mile round-trip to Mendenhall Glacier keeps you on a bike path almost all the way. Bikes are for rent at the Driftwood Lodge, 435 Willoughby Ave. (tel. 800/544-2239 or 907/586-2280;, for $25 a day.
