Skagway

 

Description of Destination : skagway
 
town of Skagway
Skagway
SKAGWAY:

In one year from 1896 to 1897, this remote town in the lovely Inside Passage grew from a few tents to a city of 20,000 gold seekers. Few one-time boomtowns retain the flavour of the golf rush days like Skagway. Located at the head of picturesque Lynn Canal and Taiya Inlet, Misty Fjords is just a float-plane ride away.

This "Gateway to the Klondike" is preserved as a National Historic Park and features one of the oldest narrow-gauge railroads in existence. Take time to ride the White Pass & Yukon Route Railway (picture below), which carries its guests through mountains, glaciers, gorges and waterfalls.

History never gets old in Skagway.

This Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park boasts restored buildings and wooden boardwalks that invite you to stroll into the past. Take your time and poke into every little store, from the Train Bench to Lynch & Kennedy's Dry Goods. The Red Onion Saloon, with its honky-tonk piano and costumed barmaids, is a treasure trove of memorabilia featuring pictures of Klondike Kate, Peahull Annie and other vintage characters. To complete the picture of those rip- roaring days, visit the nostalgic Trail of '98 Museum.
