Skagway, Alaska. White Pass & Yukon Route. My husband, sister & brother-in-law were on this train 4/2010. What a great trip. We cruised both ways.
The scenic town of Skagway was founded during the Klondike Gold Rush in the 1890's. Skagway was the starting point for prospectors going to look for gold in the Yukon. Visitors can go back in time to the days of the Gold Rush as they stroll through downtown Skagway, viewing many restored historical buildings.
