Travel Tips from people who've been to Haines
If you plan on traveling between Haines and Skagway by boat and don't have a car, take the Chilkat Fast Ferry instead of the Alaska State Ferry. The Chilkat Ferry dock is close to the center of Haines but the State Ferry dock is more than 5 miles from the center.  In Skagway, both the State Ferry dock and the Chilkat Ferry dock are within walking distance of the downtown.

nice little place in alaska, nothing much to do, the most fun thing in there is the hammer museum.. yep, you read it right.. food is good, there's a lot of wild life all over Alaska, so it's pretty much it.
