are there any of the ports where you can do a train ride like you can out of skagway - just for a day visit from one of the cruise ports. (I don't want to do the long train into Danali - this is primarily a question for an excursion to do at the cruise ports).
my question is such b/c we are contemplating which port to do - either Skagway or Sitka. There is hte train ride that my father-in-law would be interseted in doing out of Skagway - but i've had a couple of recommendates on TA that SItka may be a better port of call instead of Skagway.
... such hard decisions. :) Thanks in advance for any help!
