Wake up and start your day off right with visits to two exciting attractions and enjoy a rollicking good time. At the famous Red Onion Saloon, lavishly costumed madams greet you with a souvenir garter and a gold miner’s breakfast of eggs scrambled with onions, peppers and cheese along with sausage links, buttermilk biscuit and honey. Delight in provocative tales of Klondike Kate, Diamond Tooth Lil and other enterprising women who worked the Red Onion in 1898. The bartender shares hilarious stories of the saloon’s more recent but no less intoxicating history as he mixes you a Red Light Bloody Mary, Klondike Koffee or cocktail of your choice. Step upstairs to the celebrated brothel museum and explore the hallway, bedrooms and priceless artifacts left behind by the “soiled doves” of yesteryear. Enjoy your private visit of this historic site and have your photo taken with one of the madams before this bustling bar opens to the public.
Your journey continues with a scenic drive up the Klondike Highway, paralleling the White Pass & Yukon Route railroad and peaking at the breathtaking summit. At the Yukon Suspension Bridge your senses come alive as you take the dramatic walk across a custom-built footbridge suspended over the rapids of the Tutshi River. Explore museum-quality interpretive exhibits, savor the fresh mountain air and capture images of the spectacular scenery in this amazing land.
