Location
    (October 18, 1880- )
    Founded by Joseph Juneau
    Capital of Alaska
    Population is 30,711 (2005)
    Its name leads to frustrating misunderstandings ('What is the capital of Alaska?' 'Juneau.' 'No I don't, asshole, now tell me!').
    It was named after a Canadian gold prospector.
    Even though it is the capital of Alaska, it is not attached to the mainland.
    Its people refer to the state office building as the 'S.O.B.'
    There is no road or bridge leading in, so everything needs to be shipped or flown in.
    Like most of Alaska, the cost of living is high (even higher due to its seclusion).
    At one time its speed limit was 8 MPH.
    The 'Birdman of Alcatraz' (Robert Franklin Stroud) lived here.
    Its average annual snowfall is 101 inches.
    Its average summer high temperature is 65° Fahrenheit (Baked Alaska).
    There is a bronze statue depicting pelicans (not native to Alaska) in front of its Federal Building. It was meant for Florida but somehow ended up in Juneau.
    It is located in a borough, which is really the same thing as a county.
    Since it incorporated with the City of Douglas and the Greater Juneau Borough, it is one of the country's largest cities. It's land area is greater than the state of Delaware.
    It is one of the more beautiful state capitals, with many natural wonders within walking distance.
    Its citizens are environmentally aware.
    It is a popular destination for cruise ships. Annually, over 1 million tourists visit Juneau.
