Skagway, Alaska

Skagway, Alaska is a "first-class borough" in Alaska with a permanent population of 920 and a tourist population, during the summer months, of over 5000 people a day. It was formerly a city but was re-incorporated as a borough in 2007. This is one of the few places along the Alaskan Panhandle that there is a road and rail connection to the interior of the State. Skagway was one of the ports for access to the Klondike Gold Rush or 1896.
