This “Gateway to the Klondike” watched as fortune-seekers headed to Chilkoot and White Pass Trails during Alaska’s Gold Rush. Today, feel like a prospector in Skagway, as you walk along its rustic boardwalks and frontier-style storefronts. This cozy town offers a pleasant respite from the hustle and bustle of most cities. With classic cars and one of the oldest narrow-gauge railroads in the world, the city retains the flavor of days gone by and remains an important link to Alaska’s history. A stroll down Broadway is a must. Highlights include Arctic Brotherhood Hall. Other buildings like the Trail of ’98 Museum, Corrington’s Museum of Alaskan History and the Alaskan Wildlife Adventure and Museum present different facets of prospecting times. Before hitting famous Chilkoot Trail, there are other well-marked trails to try. Hiking to Lower Dewey Lake is an easy, 20-minutes, and there are more adventurous trails to remote Sturgill’s Landing, Upper Dewey Lake and Devil’s Punchbowl. The White Pass Scenic Railway and Eagle Preserve Wildlife Quest provide additional options.
