Cruise Ports Alaska - Skagway (PDF Chapter)
This is the Skagway chapter from Lonely Planet’s Cruise Ports Alaska guide-book.
At first sight, Skagway appears to be solely an amusement park with a million visitors tread-ing its sunny boardwalks every summer. But, haunted by Klondike ghosts and beautified by a tight grid of handsome false-fronted buildings, this is no northern Vegas.
- admire the engineering feat of the White Pass railroad (or just admire the spectacular scenery)
- discover the rough and tumble of the Gold Rush at the Klondike Gold Rush National His-torical Park
- explore Alaska Native art and Gold Rush history at the Skagway Museum
- food & drink
Coverage includes: Sights, Activities, Tours, Shopping, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Getting Around.
