The port town of Skagway!

Skagway is a great little port town in Alaska, USA and very busy in the summer months when the cruise ships come out in full force.

Skagway is a short drive from Whitehorse, Yukon and a very scenic! Great mountains, gorges, bridges, lakes, old mining shafts and winding train tracks within the mountains!


Skagway is a quiet little town but much busier during the summer cruise ship season. It was very quiet during my visit but a nice ittle town to walk around in.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Scenary, Scenary, Scenary!
  • Cons:They board the place up in the winter when the cruise ships are not in!
  • Last visit to Skagway: Nov 2001

    Moes Frontier Bar has been closed!!!! It's sad...as this bar was the real local hang out of Skagway. Now you may find many locals at the Skagway Pizza Station and at the Eagles and Elks Halls.

    Don't apologise for covering the cemetery. How a society deals with and pays homage to their dead is every bit as much a part of their culture as their art, literature, and cuisine. Good show, Jamie!

    Jamie, this is a must see destination for my wife and I. We are hoping to cruise in and drive out in 2006. I hope you enjoy the rockies in Alberta...you should try and make it to Waterton though!

    Hi again, Jamie. You know, we visited the fur shop there and saw a $20,000+ fur coat. Tried it on and took a photo for fun. The shop manager joked, "If you want it, you can marry the owner."
