The City and Borough of Juneau (CBJ) is located in the southeastern part of Alaska, north of the Alexander Archipelago.

Distances: Juneau to Anchorage 575 mi (926 km), Juneau to Seattle 893 mi (1,436 km)

Gold was discovered in 1880 near the location where Juneau is now, and soon a mining camp was established which grew to a small town called Harrisburg, later renamed to Juneau. In 1906 the seat of government of the Alaska Territory was moved from Sitka to Juneau.

Today Juneau has a population of about 33,000 inhabitants (in 2014).
Its economy is based on government, mining, tourism, and fishing.
