What to do in Skagway, Alaska While on Your Alaskan Cruise
Skagway, Alaska – There is perhaps no greater question on the lips of baby boomer Alaskan cruise travelers than what to do on their shore excursions. We were sailing aboard the Norwegian Cruise Line Pearl (our cruise video), and thankfully had our questions answered ahead of time.
Prior to our visit, we asked the very same question of Buckwheat Donahue with the Skagway Convention and Visitors Bureau. Here are the things that he lined up for our day’s visit:
- A nostalgic tour of the town with the Skagway Street Car Company.
- Lunch at The Stowaway Cafe.
- A short journey outside of town to the ghost town of Dyea.
- A four-hour scenic journey aboard the White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad
There is absolutely no way to share this experience in words. Therefore, we have created a video of our own shore excursion experiences for you to enjoy.
As you can see, Skagway is set in a stunningly beautiful landscape and the town has provided a great many fun ways to explore the area. We greatly enjoyed our visit and we hope to return and spend much more time exploring this beautiful area.
Disclosure: Our Skagway experience was provided by the Skagway Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Skagway Street Car Company, the Stowaway Cafe, and the White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad. Thank you! What an amazing experience!
