I really enjoyed walking around Skagway and looking at the historical buildings some dating back to the late 1800"s. Skagway is a pretty samll place but packed with beauty. Take you time and enjoy it. There are plenty of restaraunts and tons of shopping. The historic town is beautiful and the surrounding mountains are georgous.

We picked up a map to do a walking tour along Broadway, State, Spring Sts and along 4th to 8th Aves from the national park service visitor center next door to the railroad depot. It was interesting seeing the original buildings withe the wooden boardwalks like you'd see in the old western movies and reading about their history. Sad part... More

I have been to many revamped historic towns but this one is over the top. The building are original not reproductions, you actually feel you are back in the gold rush. Soapy Smith is alive and well.

Yeah, Skagway is a tourist trap, what with all the cruise ships coming in, but it's still a great place to visit. There is so much history here-several buildings date back to 1898. The Klondike Gold Rush NHP is here and tells the story of the 1898 gold rush. There are several activities to choose from: museums, the train, trails,... More

Broadway Street is the "historic area" with restored old buildings that are occupied with a mind numbing number of jewelry stores all hawking tanzanite jewelry. When the cruise ships are in the street is awash in tourists, so if you want to see the area, wait until the cruisers have retreated to their ships. State street is one block north... More

Just for the Cruise Ship Tourists ! , it's amusing and some a little quaint, it all closes down when Summer and the Cruise Ships finish. Jewellery stores, so over these and tacky Tourist souvenirs . We took a trip to the Yukon, visited the local Cemetery, before taking the stroll through the streets.

We had fun and saw quite a few items that interested us; but, as a whole it seemed very touristy. I do understand the town has only a few months for commerce before winter arrives. If I lived there I would be doing the same thing.

It's a pretty view. The stores sell mostly jewelry and souvenirs. Takes a couple of hours to go through the main part of town but that's only if you plan on going through each store. Didn't like the pushy salesmen that attack you to buy jewelry as soon as you step into their store, so after a bit I just... More

Its an easy walk through the town with nicely restored buildings. When the cruise ships are in the town is overrun by tourists (I was one of them). But for $5.00 you can ride the local transit busses to and from the ship and all around the town including a visit to the Jewell Garden (well worth it) as often... More

I am not sure how all the high-end jewellery shops survive, but be prepared for a strange mix of tacky souvenier shops and expensive jewellery stores. The walking tours run by the rangers are free and very informative.
