Skagway

The last stop on a cruise through the Inside Passage, Skagway has a colorful gold rush history as the starting place for more than 40,000 gold-rush stampeders who headed to the Yukon primarily by way of the Chilkoot Trail during the Klondike Gold Rush. The main street in town, Broadway, features historic false-front shops, restaurants and restored buildings, many of which are part of the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park. One of the most historic buildings is the Mascot Saloon, which was one of the town’s earliest brothels during Skagway’s heyday. Built in 1898, the saloon is today a museum, and does not serve a drop of wine, beer or whiskey. Other interesting buildings in Skagway are the the Arctic Brotherhood Hall, and the Moore Homestead, Skagway’s oldest building, dating back to 1887. 

Apart from the historical tours of the Broadway district that are offered five times a day during the summer by the Park Rangers of the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park, Skagway is famous for being the starting point of the White Pass & Yukon Railroad. Originally built in 1898 for the stampeders headed for the Klondike gold fields, the historic narrow-gauge railway offers several tours ranging from 2 hours to a full-day, past spectacular sights like Glacier Gorge, Dead Horse Gulch, and Bridal Veil Falls, and the international boundary between the United States and Canada, at the top of White Pass, at an elevation of 2,888 feet. There are also several helicopter tours departing from Skagway that offer glacier flightseeing, as well as glacier landings, glacier treks and glacier dog-sled rides.
