The guide who grew up in the area took us on a tour of strange historical sites in the town. She was extremely knowledgeable and pleasant. I highly recommend the tour.

Our guide Lizzy was knowledge and friendly. Although I had visited Eagle River many times in my youth she enlightened me on the turn of the century history of this logging town and early 1900's gangster stories. Good value.
