Whitehorse: the Wilderness City
Situated on the wild river which gives the Yukon its name, Whitehorse is a place which will make you want to drop your GPS and follow the trail of adventure. The city grows at a steady rate while maintaining wilderness at its doorstep. It is one of the few cities in the world which takes pride in its natural abundance and has worked its way around mountains, lakes and rivers. A quaint yet vibrant neighbourhood, this part of Whitehorse is a hub of activities for those who call it home. There are colorful festivals and events planned throughout the year so there’s never a dull moment for those that live here (unless you want one of course).
Tourism, mining and the government sector are the chief employers that help Whitehorse maintain a steady economic pace and also make it lucrative for new businesses. Downtown Whitehorse bustles with entertainment and shopping. But why settle for passing time downtown, when there are great sights and natural wonders at your doorstep? Whitehorse is the perfect place to experience the beautiful Canadian outdoors.
