Whitehorse Warnings and Dangers: 7 reviews and 4 photos
A warning for travellers, especially backpackers and younger adults: if you are planning on travelling up into Alaska, the American border guards will often ask for proof of funds while in the state. I saw many a person turned away. You should have a written offer of employment for working there or a printed statement of funds in your banking account, travellers cheques and/or a credit card. $500 was usually the minimum you were required to prove you had. Hitchhikers are especially prone to these kind of checks. (don't be fooled, I met 2 Americans that were refused entrance into Alaska!)
