we are 4 adults and 4 kids (ages 3 1/2, 5 1/2, 7,9) - cruise in July arrive Juneau on a Tue from 7am to 1:30pm - 6.5 hrs
1) how best to get to Mendenhall? i read "MGT (blue busses) and Juneau Tours (white busses) and they charge $8 each way. " are kids our ages charged the same? how often do they run?
or if we rent car, where/how? is it possible to seat 8?
or if taxi - not sure if we can fit in one - if we lap the two younger kids...are taxi's on the large side or small? are taxi's easy to find?
2) hiking: any suggestions? i think we ought to be able to do at least an hour. i read "The trail to Nugget falls is mostly flat and even walking slowly will take no longer than an hour." is there a web site with map? any other suggestions or comments?
3) is there food at the visitor's center? i'm guessing not - suggestions for a good sandwitch place in town near where cruises dock?
