I am a resident and do not live in Old Town, but do much business there. It is best experienced by walking and dropping into the local stores, galleries, restaurants, aviation hangars and talking to folks. If you are lucky, you might even get a tour of a houseboat!

A very unique place to tour around and live! Interesting contrasts between old and new architecture, the local life and history. Leave yourself a few hours to walk around, you don't want to miss anything.

Old Town consists of a handful of relatively old (1930s) and some dilapidated buildings. Compared to a typical 5 star historical town, like Virginia City in Nevada,, Tombstone, Az, or the old town of Quebec city, this is a 1 star attraction. . .

If you are coming to see the Northern Lights (a 5 star attraction in my opinion), or hunt or fish you may want to spend 5 minutes driving through.

Awesome! If you can't or don't want to go on a tour group to see the northern lights, there's a great place to see them in town. Just walk or head over to Pilot's Monument in Old Town (there's parking for about 10 cars there) and climb to the top and see it in the open sky. A great place during the day for arts and also to take in the local stories.
