ON YOUR OWN
You have a long day in Skagway, so you can enjoy a shore excursion and still have time to explore in town. There are many tour offices on Broadway, and savings are good if you book your own. We highly recommend a ride on the White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad, which follows the path of the gold rush up to and beyond Fraser, B.C. Reserve in advance, as the cruise lines gobble up a lot of seats (https://wpyr.com, 800-343-7373). Our rail excursion included a return trip by bus, with a stop at Liarsville. This spot on the edge of Skagway was jumping-off point for the prospectors, and provides just modest entertainment. Back in town, the Days of ‘98 show is more satisfying, a professionally-acted melodrama about the town’s famous shoot-out. Tickets are easy to get at the box office, with several shows daily. The Red Onion Saloon offers hourly Brothel Tours for $5 (which is what “it” cost, back in the day). The young female guides make the slightly spicy tour worthwhile. More serious-minded walking tours are available at the National Park headquarters nearby. Hikers can explore the local Dewey Lake trail network, departing near the intersection of 3rd St. and Spring St. Or, walk about two miles up State St. to the Gold Rush Cemetery and Reid Falls. The railway will drop hikers off at higher elevations. None of the museums are worth more than a half-hour of your time, including the Skagway Museum at 7th and Spring, and various National Park exhibits. The Corrington Museum in the shop of the same name is worthwhile and free.
