Whitehorse is a great city for the outdoor enthusiast. Make sure you take a dip in the Takhini Hot Springs. If you're looking for nightlife though, look elsewhere.
Dawson City is cool with their crooked sidewalks and dirt streets and wicked saloons -- that sour toe is truly something to behold. But, hey, twenty-four hours of sun! Who needs power?
Dawson City is a cool place! And the sourtoe is wicked -- and so disgusting I did it twice! I will try to make it up there again this summer -- a fun place.
Whitehorse is a ton of fun in the summer. All the live music, the food was really good.
I love Dawson City. Its so far away from everything but when arriving it feels right at home. Its small with only maybe 2000 people but full of stuff to do and with more bars and saloons than any other place with only that few people. especially the music festival in mid July is worth the trip (make sure you have a bed reserved at the hostel but if you tent the hostel always has space) and there are great hiking and mountain biking trips. And 24 hour daylight is really amazing. I read most books by Jack London and Dawson City seems as it must have been when he was here. Early September must be the nicest time because then its dark again at night but I also could see great Northern Light....and also the Fall colours and both together are magic watching it from the viewing deck of the hostel.
Nightlife in Whitehorse during the summer can be awesome! Lots of live bands and local talent, as well as a neat mix of people to meet. Check out "Mamma Martini's" for food or its adjoining bar "Lizards" for really cool live music.
