The One Town In Alaska That Doubles In Population Every Summer

Skagway lies on Alaska’s Inside Passage, right where the panhandle meets mainland Alaska. Historically, it is a place where people disembark to head into the gold fields of the Klondike. Skagway has well kept historical buildings, and the front street has all the of pioneer charm you could want in a Gold Rush boom town. In the summer months, the town explodes with life and color as the businesses get in gear and seasonal community members return. The cruise ships steadily approach all summer long with visitors. The population actually doubles in the summer in this unique Alaskan town.
