Skagway is a place of beauty. Go there!

Ask the Skagway visitor bureau and they will enthusiastically tell you why this is such a great place:

"A place exists in Alaska where the past lives on, where the cries of "gold in the Yukon" still echo from steep canyon walls, where the sounds of barroom pianos and boomtown crowds ring out in the night. A place where the romance and excitement of yesteryear linger around every street corner, every bend in the trail. That place is Skagway."
