Skagway — In Tlingit, it means a windy place with white caps on the water. The city of Skagway flourished during the famous Klondike Gold Rush at the end of the 19th century. Today, Skagway is one of the busiest cruise ship destinations in the world, seeing almost one million tourists in the summer season. The Skagway News has proudly served as this unique community’s source of information and news for more than 41years. We directly tap into the living heart of the town: It’s more than 900 year-round residents. The newspaper’s reach doesn’t stop at Skagway’s borders, however. The Skagway News is sold in Juneau and in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, and it’s mailed to subscribers as far away as Sweden.

Even with Skagway’s remote location, the tourism business has allowed our residents to thrive. The community has a median household income of about $72,000, among the highest in the state. Advertising with The Skagway News puts your business at the community’s fingertips.

In addition to our regular publication, which caters to the town, we also print a yearly visitor’s guide, The Skaguay Alaskan. More than 100,000 copies of the annual guide are passed out free to cruise ship visitors and circulated throughout the area.
