Things To Do
The Maxine & Jesse Whitney Museum
Featuring one of the largest collections of Native Alaskan Art & Artifacts, trophy class animal mounts, books and videos on Alaska, as well as native clothing and bead work. Open 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.; closed Saturday and Sunday. 303 Lowe Street, Valdez, 907-834-1690.
Small Boat Harbor
If you are down on the waterfront area in the morning or evening, exploring the Small Boat Harbor is always fun, and you may catch a glimpse of sea otters. At dawn watch the harbor wake up as the charter operators and commercial fleets get ready for a day’s work on the water. Early evening finds the “catch of the day” being cleaned by happy, but tired fishermen.
Salt Water Salmon Fishing
Visitors who want to try their hand at Pink or Silver Salmon fishing in July and August can rent equipment in town. Pink Salmon make the migration to Valdez during July. August brings the return of the Silvers. Those wishing to fish need to have a current Alaska fishing license. The best shore fishing in town is on the waterfront at the Valdez City Dock.
Ruth Pond
Just below the Civic Center Hill, across the street from the City Dock is Ruth Pond. This wonderful mini-park is perfect for relaxing in the sun and watching the rays sparkle on the water. Freshwater fishermen will want to test out their latest flies on the Rainbow trout in this area. Remember to bring your baseball and mitt as grass surrounding the pond is excellent for a pick-up game of catch!
Mineral Creek Canyon
On the north side of downtown Valdez is a beautiful six-mile gravel road that gradually winds its way up through a mountain canyon. The road is paralleled by Mineral Creek, which empties into Prince William Sound. At the end of the road is an easy two-mile (round-trip) trail, which leads back to an old abandoned gold stamp mill. Take your cameras and enjoy a slice of Valdez history while hiking, biking, or driving through fantastic scenery.
Gold Rush Days
Come celebrate our history and heritage during Gold Rush Days in August. A wide variety of activities for kids of all ages: "Old Time Fashion Show", picnics, face painting, live music, community fish fry, raffle drawings and so much more! Be sure to pick up a Schedule of Events so you don't miss a thing!
Civic Center Hill Viewing Pavilion
Civic Center Hill Viewing Pavilion – For those visitors wanting a better vantage point of the Port of Valdez there is no better view than from the look-out pavilion on Civic Center Hill, located in the south-west end of town, near the City Dock. Bring your cameras. You won’t want to miss the shot from here.
Dock Point Trail
The Dock Point Trail is a one-mile loop located on a secluded hill close to downtown Valdez. Parts of the trail are wheelchair accessible. The loop features excellent south-facing views of Port Valdez, easy walking on gravel trails and boardwalks; and a more difficult section connecting two timber overlook platforms. One of the prettiest hikes for its size–a nature lover's delight!
Valdez Bike Path
This trail parallels the Richardson highway along the Valdez Duck Flats and passes right by the Crooked Creek Salmon Spawning Area and National Forest Service Cabin. Accessible from downtown, this seven-mile trail is a great way for walkers, joggers, or cyclists to get their daily exercise. Birders should bring their “life lists,” as fantastic opportunities exist for bird and waterfowl viewing. In addition, this trail is paved and provides excellent access for visitors with wheelchairs.
Valdez Museum
Visitors to Valdez will not want to miss the best small museum in the state. Share our past by viewing the exhibits and artifacts from our Gold Rush days to the present. Relics from Old Town Valdez, including the former Pinzon Bar, are on display in the museum. 217 Egan Avenue, Valdez, 907-835-2764.
Valdez Museum Annex
While in Valdez visit the historic Old Town Model, a replica of Valdez as it appeared just before the 1964 earthquake. The Model includes 60 city blocks and 400 buildings, and is also topographically detailed. There are eleven individual pods for easy viewing. Details include sheds, swing sets, church spires, signage and gardens. “Though the Earth Be Moved” is a 40-minute documentary about the 1964 earthquake, shown at the Museum Annex, 436 Hazel Street, Valdez, 907-835-5407.
