Skagway is a browser’s paradise; an ideal place to sit, shop, look, and linger. Visitors frequently comment that shopping in Skagway is the best in Alaska, thanks to the quality, variety and value of the items you will find in our centrally located shopping district.
Gold Rush-era buildings now house many local businesses, turning even a shopping excursion into a historical adventure. Wander shop-to-shop along the boardwalks of the historic business district, and you will retrace the steps of earnest stampeders as they outfitted for the Klondike. Throughout the district, false-fronted buildings press against boardwalk-lined streets, creating an atmosphere of fun and excitement unequaled in the region.
Our shops are sure to delight you. Featured in a wide array of merchandise is the work of local artisans specializing in ivory, wood, gold, silver, clay, pen & ink, oil and watercolor. Skagway and Alaskan souvenirs, specialty gifts, clothing, fishing, hunting, and camping supplies round out the selection.
There are plenty of opportunities to find work by local artisans in Skagway. Look for the ‘Made in Skagway’ logo for products that are crafted locally.
