Skagway: History never gets old in Skagway. Few one-time boomtowns retain the flavor of the gold rush days like Skagway. The Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park boasts restored buildings and Wooden boardwalks that invite you to stroll into the past. Take your time and soak up the local flavor in the colorful taverns and shops. One of my favorites is the Red Onion Saloon, with its honky-tonk piano and costumed barmaids, is a treasure trove of memorabilia, featuring pictures of Klondike Kate, Peahull Annie and other vintage characters.
