Experience It! Dawson City, Yukon

Located in Yukon, Canada, the small town of Dawson City struck gold in 1896. This center of the Klondike Gold Rush drew tens of thousands of people here in search of riches. Now the largest city west of Winnipeg and north of Seattle, it became known as the “Paris of the North” because of the extravagant spending and bohemian lifestyle of its residents. The boom dwindled as quickly as it grew. In 1899, gold was struck in Nome and the fortune seekers followed. Today, Dawson City is a place where art and culture meets history all tucked away in the middle of the Yukon’s breathtaking wilderness.
