Skagway is beautiful, the scenery exquisite. The town is quaint, but leans on the side of being a bit touristy. Lots of shops and jewelry shops. There are a few little treasures amidst the shops. Skagway is a normal port of call on most Alaska cruises and there is plenty to do.
On our first trip to Skagway, we took a jet boat along the coastline watching the wildlife and abundance of eagles in the area. It was a lot of fun. This trip we wanted to explore on our own and it is easy to do.
