The northern terminus of the Alaska Marine Highway, Skagway was a gold-rush town infamous for its lawlessness. In 1887 the population was two; 10 years later it was Alaska’s largest city, with 20, 000 residents. Today, Skagway survives entirely on tourism and gets packed when a handful of cruise ships pull in and thousands passengers converge on the town as if the Klondike gold rush was still on.
