Alaska Shopping: 18 reviews and 16 photos


We came across this when we went out to Whitehorse, Yukon. It’s an entire town for sale right off the Alaska Highway. If we had a ton of extra money, we’d buy it and give it to the residents or help make their lives easier. Whatever they want to do with it, they should get the final word. It’s their land. But the question raised with this purchase is: what do you do when you buy a town? I am not sure how that works but you do hear of it every now and again. Northway is located between Tok and the Canadian border but the lady we spoke with while getting coffee told us they never get supplies and always run out of things. A great deal comes with this purchase as you can see from the sign.
The asking price? Not bad considering many houses cost more than this here in the US: $680,000.

What to buy: Read the sign...see what's included

What to pay: $680,000
