A picturesque town, Haines is found on America's largest fjord. Surrounded by glacier-covered mountains and rolling hills, it is in Haines that the largest annual gathering of bald eagles takes place. So, it goes without saying, bald eagles are one of the main draws. During your time you can visit the ‘Chilkat Bald Eagle Reserve'. A 48,000-acre park, thousands of Bald Eagles gather here each fall to gorge on the salmon in the Chilkat River. ‘The American Eagle Foundation' is another popular hotspot. Its purpose is to educate the public about the national symbol – the majestic eagle. You'll come across a variety of fascinating exhibits on display.
When it comes to souvenirs, smoked salmon and halibut are popular purchases. Some shops will ship them for you if you don't want to carry them. Other must buys include silkscreen prints, fine jewellery, Eskimo arts and other locally made gifts. The best place to find shops selling these goods is along Portage St - near Fort Seward.
The local currency in Haines is the US Dollar (USD). Haines is 9 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT -9).
