Dawson, deep in Canada ‘s Yukon , was their final destination; a true Wild West town, and home to such characters as Jefferson R. “Soapy” Smith and his gang of rascals.

Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park: The history of Skagway ‘s wild past is preserved here, complete with wooden boardwalks and false-fronted buildings. Take a ride on the White Pass and Yukon Railroad, or perhaps an antique automobile or bus.

Gold Rush Cemetery: Visit the site of Skagway ‘s two most famous men; “Soapy” Smith and his murderer, Frank Reid.
