Downtown Skagway is seven blocks long and two blocks wide, offering virtually unlimited gift ideas for friends and family, from gold nuggets to hand-carved ivory (from sea mammals, such as walrus). More than a hundred businesses are waiting to make your Alaska shopping experience memorable. Local sculptors, carvers, beadists and photographers offer their artwork throughout downtown.
Take a break from shopping with a locally made, medal-winning beer and great meal at the Skagway Brewing Company or the notorious Red Onion Saloon. There’s another nice pub called the Bonanza between those two establishments, making your shopping efforts “thirst-free.”
