Hyder Alaska

from Condé Nast Traveler

The American Town That's Secretly Canadian

Hyder, population 87, is Alaska’s easternmost town, a tiny town surrounded by lofty, glacier-covered peaks at the corner of the Alaska Panhandle. The town boomed in the early 20th century when gold and silver were discovered nearby, but is now so small that residents bill it as “Alaska’s friendliest ghost town.” The ferry to Ketchikan, the nearest Alaskan city, stopped running more than a decade ago.

With a population of only 87 and situated just across the border from Stewart, British Columbia in far southern SE Alaska, it's one of only 3 towns in the panhandle that you can drive into from the rest of the world. It also does not use the 907 area code that the rest of Alaska uses, but the Canadian area code of 250.
