- Discover Dawson City
Dawson City is a must stop, a national historic site that preserves an entire city, with many of its buildings dating back to the Klondike Gold Rush. An estimated 100,000 gold seekers headed for the Klondike in 1897, after news of George Carmack’s 1896 discovery of gold on Rabbitt Creek reached the outside world, although only a fraction of them made it to Dawson City that first winter. A tent town with less than 500 people in 1896, Dawson boomed as the gold rush gained momentum, boasting some 30,000 residents by 1898. Visit the Dawson Museum for displays about the gold rush, or take in the Robert Service Show to recapture the spirit of the times. Don’t miss the opportunity to experience the North’s most famous gold rush town.
