Skagway — If you were going to visit just one town in Southeast Alaska, Skagway would be a top contender. While other towns in the region make for great jumping-off spots, this tiny community is a destination unto itself. Part of Skagway’s charm lies in its preservation: the Park Service has rescued some 15 buildings from the Gold Rush era, and today those historic relics make this small town—just 23 blocks long and four blocks wide—as authentic an example of 19th-century life as you’ll find anywhere.
