We spent 3 nights in Seward during our land based trip to Alaska.
- It's the gateway to Kenai Fjords National Park
- The beautiful landscape, mountains and harbor
- The scenic drive along the Seward Highway from Anchorage. (I hear views from the train are equally rewarding.)
- The close proximity to Exit Glacier - and one that you can walk right up to
- Alaska SeaLife Center
When we pulled into town the party boats were back from their day of fishing and they proceeded to unload their catch. I have never seen such large halibut! The crew hosed off the fish and weighed the largest ones. The opposite side of the fish is white.
Funny how everyone assumed we were taking a cruise. As if visiting Alaska is synonomous with cruising. This trip was land based starting in Fairbanks ending in Anchorage. Even when I mentioned we were traveling by train and car, before I departed most wished me a good cruise :-).
Location: 126 miles south of Anchorage
Population: 4,000 residents
- Pros:Some of the best scenery in the U.S., excellent fishing, Kenai Fjords N.P., lots of wildlife sitings
- Cons:It rains a lot, year round cool temps
- In a nutshell:Supposedly a good place to sample the "Real Alaska"
If you have any interest in the sled dog teams or the Iditarod, you may want to visit & take a tour at the Seavey... more travel advice
From May through September, it's common to see cruise ships docked at the harbor. Seward is either a final destination... more travel advice
