A little about Skagway...
Skagway is a city in Skagway-Hoonah-Angoon Census Area, Alaska, on the Alaska Panhandle. As of the 2000 census, the population of the city is 862. The port of Skagway is a popular stop for cruise ships, and the tourist trade is a big part of the city's business. The White Pass and Yukon Route narrow gauge railroad, part of the area's mining past, is now in operation purely for the tourist trade and runs throughout the summer months.
Skagway (originally spelled Skaguay) is from the Tlingit name for the area, "Skagua." The name has several meanings, "the place where the north wind blows," "stiffly wind-rippled water," etc.
The Skagway area today is home to the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park and White Pass and Chilkoot Trails. Skagway has a historic district of about 100 buildings from the gold rush era. It receives about three-quarters of a million tourists annually, most of whom come on cruise ships. The White Pass and Yukon Route still operates its narrow-gauge train around Skagway during the summer months primarily for tourists.
