Dawson City

 

Dawson City is a small town (about 1,300), located in western Yukon.

It is an old mining town that has retained some of its frontier landmarks and atmosphere. In addition to mining museums, travelers can boat down Dawson Creek or hike in the beautiful surrounding area.

The area draws around 60,000 visitors each year, primarily during the summer.

Dawson City is accessible by the Top of the World Highway (from Alaska) and the Klondike Highway (from lower Canada), as well as by a small airport.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
