Hop on the Train in Skagway

We got to Skagway via a ferry from Haines for a day trip, although you can also drive. Most people get there by cruise ship. Either way, once you are there you'll enjoy a gold rush era town & a chance to ride the White Pass Yukon Route engineering marvel that was built in 1898 during the Klondike Gold Rush. It climbs nearly 3000 feet in just 20 miles, with steep grades of up to 3.9%, and cliffhanging turns of 16%. Fun way to spend the afternoon
