The Main Street in Skagway was nice but all the shops had the same things. There is a neat popcorn and fudge shop. I'd recommend paying $5 for an all day pass on he shuttles. It doesn't look for to downtown from the ship but it's farther than you think. We did the white pass to the summit excursion. It's a 3 hour excursion with some breathtaking views. Highly recommend it if you are looking for a low energy tour. Also for those of you with mobility issues there is a car with a lift that makes it very easy to get on.

We did the 3-hr White Pass & Yukon Route excursion through the ship. We walked down the gangway and climbed aboard the train. Well done, no walking into town to catch it. We wandered the town afterward and at lunch at a taco truck. We visited the bar the locals go to across from the truck. Happy Endings bar.
