The most visited glacier in Alaska must be the Mendenhall glacier. It is close to Juneau, and the many cruiseships offer daytours to the glacier from the ship. This means it can be very crowdy here. But if you arrive early it is nice to take a hike in the area around the glacier. There is also a salmon viewing platform. In season you can see the salmon who come here to spawn. The season is around half july - half august. There even was a black bear fishing on the salmon when we were here. But we didn't manage to catch it on camera.
The visitor centre of Mendenhall glacier charges a 3 $ entry fee.
