Main Street, Whitehorse, Yukon Territory
When you think “capital city”, a scene like this is probably not what you think of. I’m not necessarily implying that Whitehorse, the capital city of the Yukon Territory, is not a bustling city…because it is certainly a busy place compared to much of the surrounding small towns and endless wilderness! But this stretch of Main Street is a great example of the down-to-earth character of the Yukon, and it had a number of great shops like a delicious bakery/coffee place (Baked) and cool book store (Mac’s Fireweed Books). In fact, there were a bunch of great eateries and little shops all over the city that made it a cool place for a stroll about town.
