No visit to Tenakee would be complete without a long soak in the hot springs, whose healing properties drew the Tlingit people to this area long ago. The springs, which include a beautifully-restored bathhouse and changing room, are right in the middle of town, across from Tenakee Springs Market.
If you like small-town Independence Day celebrations, you’ll love this one. It’s an all-day celebration of tasty food and quirky games, featuring kids, dogs, floats, flags...and slugs. It begins with a parade of people walking and riding bikes and four-wheelers along Tenakee Avenue, beginning at the fire hall.
Hike through forested paths along the shoreline east or west of Tenakee Springs. Heading west brings you to many beautiful little bays.
