On August 7, the City and Borough of Juneau hosted hundreds of competitors in Alaska’s first-ever full-distance Ironman triathlon, considered one of the most grueling single-day sports events in the world.
“As more people are vaccinated, we could see more Americans ready to travel—and travel safely—this summer,” writes a group of visitor bureau leaders. “But as you’ve no doubt seen, Alaska’s tourism businesses face a lot of challenges between now and recovery.

Travel Juneau released its 2018-2019 Convention Survey and 2018 Visitor Survey, both conducted by McDowell Group.
