    Very comfortable place to stay in Dawson

    by

    If you ask locals for hotel recommendations in Dawson, I doubt they'll recommend the Westmark Inn. This hotel is not locally owned (it belongs to the Holland Cruise group) and people therefore tend to put it down. But the truth is that it's probably the best place to stay in Dawson City. The rooms are large, clean and very comfortable (with thick curtains to keep that midnight sun out!). There's computer access and free wi-fi in the lobby, a cool lounge with rooftop terrace, and a restaurant (we didn't go, but I took a look at the menu and it looked very affordable). The hotel is divided into different sections (we stayed in the Robert Service wing), which gives it a cosy feeling and makes it seem smaller than it actually is. It's always full of cruiseship tourists, and since their buses tend to leave early in the morning, the place is very quiet at night. It also happened to be the hotel offering the lowest rate when we traveled to Dawson.

    Directions: Between Harper and Princess St.

Yukon and Klondike Rivers

by Stephen-KarenConn

Dawson City was built on a marshy spit of ground at the confluence of the Yukon and Klondike Rivers. A "Confluence Viewing Deck" on the south side of town offers exhibits which detail some of the early history of the area.

Before the gold rush there was not a permament settlement on this spot, which was sometimes referred to as a moose pasture. The native Han people did occasionally use the area as a fish camp.

A dike keeps the river out of the city today. Along the top of the wall is a nice walking path. It is interesting to see the difference in the two rivers. The Yukon is filled with glacial silt and has almost a muddy appearance. The Klondike is clear. After the rivers merge they both become the Yukon, which winds it's way genererally westward into and through Alaska and to the Bering Sea. The river is very popular with rafters, Kayakers, and other outdoor enthusiasts.

a "frontier" feeling about it

by call_me_rhia

Dawson City is home of the Klondike, the place where the best-known gold-rush took place. The town itself has kept the charm of the Gold Rush days, with wooden buildings and cabins, and unpaved dusty streets. There's a casino too, with can-can shows. Being able to walk around it... traffic-free. The town itself is very small: 8 streets cross it horizontally, so you don't really need any sort of transportation... in fact there isn't. You can only walk around and enjoy it!

historical buildings

by call_me_rhia

The town's council is spending lots of money on the preservation of the many historical buildings and is doing a really good job. All the buildings are very charming and nostalgic, so I warmly recommend to slowly explore every street and avenue (they are not many, don't worry) and take in the sights. There are all sorts of old wooden stores and restaurants to see, but one should not miss the town's library, either. the people at the firefighters museum - that i had to visit on behalf of a firefighter friend: wonderful friendly caring people

Dawson Discovery Days

by Stephen-KarenConn

The third weekend of August every year Dawson City celebrates "Discovery Days," in commemoration of the discovery of Klondike gold in 1896. A highlight of the weekend is the Saturday Discovery Days Parade (pictured) sponsored by the Yukon Order of Pioneers. Other special events held throughout the weekend include numerous exhibits, raft, canoe and bathtub races and dances. I was lucky to get a the last available room at the Bunkhouse for this weekend and most Dawson City Hotels had out their "No Vacancy" signs, so advance reservations are recommended.
