  early spring in Seward
by PA2AKgirl

From Anchorage, Seward is a day trip (125 miles/ 200 km) and any time of the year. We went down in the winter and while some of the larger activities were not available, it didn’t really matter. Seward is a very cute town and during the warmer months, a tourist attraction but still, not a trap by any means. The town reminds me of Sitka, directly on the water and surrounding by mountains. It’s also a fishing paradise with a quaint downtown. A major difference between Seward and Sitka is that it is connected by a road, making supplies easy to get down to Seward. The town is right near Kenai Fjords National Park, so there’s a visitor center in the downtown and during the summer, many packages and tours are offered. In the winter, there’s plenty of recreational activities close by like skiing or snowboading and dog sledding. Seward is the biggest town close to Anchorage that is considered a “must see” and a wonderful getaway from the city with more of a real Alaska feel to it.%c
