Dawson City is similar to Skagway but without the cruise ships not quite as commercialized. A lot of the town is owned by Parks Canada and is realistically preserved.
Diamond Tooth Gerties still has a functioning casino and puts on shows similar to 120 years ago (with modern music).
Big Ben (6'-6")was staying at the Eldorado Hotel as well and we became friends. He is on a Discovery Channel show called Gold Rush.
The SS Keno is a preserved historic sternwheel paddle steamer and National Historic Site of Canada. The SS Keno is berthed in a dry dock on the waterfront of the Yukon River in Dawson City, Yukon, Canada.
The vessel was constructed in 1922, in Whitehorse, by the British Yukon Navigation Company, a subsidiary of the White Pass and Yukon Route railway company. For most of its career it transported silver, zinc and lead ore down the Stewart River from mines in the Mayo district to the confluence of the Yukon and Stewart rivers at Stewart City. It was retired from commercial service in 1951 due to the extension and improvement of the Klondike Highway in the years after World War II.
