Skagway is a town with a population of less than a thousand in south-eastern Alaska, the largest state in the United States of America. It is the northern terminus of the Alaska Marine Highway System. It sprang up during the Yukon gold rush in the late 1800s, and now subsists almost entirely on tourism. The historical interest and natural beauty of the area make it a worthwhile place to visit.
