Coming to the Yukon and not visiting Dawson City is like going to Agra and failing to see the Taj Mahal. At the heart of summer, when the atmosphere is more that of theme park than museum, you may feel that Dawson has been saved at the expense of its character and soul. To get the most out of a visit you have to enter into the spirit of the place. Submerging yourself in the history is essential, maybe by reading a work like Pierre Berton’s bestseller Klondike (1958), the short stories of Jack London or poetry by Robert Service. More importantly, Dawson’s soul remains that of a party town, so go gambling at Diamond Tooth Gertie’s, have a few drinks in the saloon and dream of gold.
