Haines is a borough located on North Americas' longest fjord, the Lynn Canal.  The port, which is served year-round by the state operated Alaska Marine ferry service, can also be accessed via the highway through Whitehorse 

From Haines, the Alaska Marine ferries travel to Skagway, the most northern point along the Inside Passage, before turning around and heading back south to stop at the island ports of Juneau, Sitka, Petersburg, Kake, Wrangell, Ketchikan, Prince Rupert BC and finally Bellingham which is the most southern and only terminal in Washington State.

Haines is the Yukon / Alaska junction for all highway traveling north to Anchorage (about 775 road miles) Fairbanks etc.
Be aware that the AlCan Hwy running north from Haines travels through Canada - so a current passport for anyone over 18 years is absolutely required to cross the Canada /US land border.
Note too that the US/Canada border crossing is closed from 11pm thru 7am.

Some things to remember when planning to cross the US/Canada border. Canada does not allow hand guns, nor automatic or semi automatic guns into the country. DUIs are regarded in Canada as a felony, so be aware that if travelling with restricted guns, or if having a record showing any type of felony, entry into Canada may be refused.

With a current resident population of some 1,800+, Haines is rated by Outside Magazine as one of the 20 best places in the US to live. Housing and expenses are slightly more than the national average, but less than in most of Alaska. The average annual income per household in Haines is just under 80K, and the average Haines resident age is slightly over 40 years.  

Art, culture and an abundance of wildlife can all be found in this neighbour borough to 20 million acres of protected wilderness.

If planning to visit Haines by ferry be sure to book reservations as early as possible. 
Each year cabin and vehicle space for the Spring / Summer sailings sell out many months in advance.  If this happens when you are planning to travel/ move, explore sending your vehicle to Alaska by barge.

Barges carry vehicles, but no passengers, however Alaska Air provides some inexpensive early morning flights (often $100 pp) from Seattle to Anchorage. You can cost and or book either the ferry or barge using the widget. Using that Quote/booking widget does not commit you to a booking but will provide a summary, plus the costs of the trip you have entered, before it asks for your personal information.   All that is required to get a quote is where you are travelling from and to, the dates you wish to travel, the length of your vehicle if travelling with one, the number of people in your party and their ages. Passenger ages are important as it enables the widget to  automatically apply discounted fares for seniors and children. 

It is important to note that Haines accommodation is very limited and that advance booking of any required lodging if you do not want to sleep in your vehicle, is important.
