The historic Gold Rush Cemetery sits right beside the railroad tracks two miles north of town. The largest monument is Frank Reid’s, while Soapy Smith only rates a wooden plank. While you’re here, be sure to follow the short trail above the cemetery to scenic Lower Reid Falls. City-run SMART buses will take you as far as 23rd Avenue for $2 each way; from there it’s an almost-level stroll to the cemetery.
Continue out on the Klondike Highway  and cross the bridge over the Skagway River. On the left is Jewell Gardens (907/983-2111, www.jewellgardens.com , daily 11 a.m.–3 p.m. early May–Sept., $12 adults, $6 children), with a very impressive collection of flowers and vegetables plus a garden railroad for model-train enthusiasts. Admission includes a self-guided tour of the garden and the chance to watch a glassblower at work. The café serves a fixed-menu lunch using organic ingredients from the garden.
