Seward is a charming port city perched at the tip of Resurrection Bay on Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula. Tucked between the ocean and the mountains, it offers an array of experiences to suit every taste. Picturesque trails including one that winds up to the summit of Mount Marathon lead you to stunning landscapes, each more photo-worthy than the next! From watching seals and puffins at the Alaska SeaLife Center to fishing expeditions sailing out of the harbor, the rich marine life promises hours of enjoyment. If boats are not for you, fly over the glaciers in a helicopter or a seaplane. Meanwhile, the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center is ideal for sightings of bear and moose. Soak in the old world charm of the historic downtown area that also boasts a vibrant food and nightlife scene. Spend an enjoyable afternoon viewing the many vibrant murals of downtown or visiting art galleries showcasing local talent. Having a good time comes easy in Seward with a host of nightspots and restaurants to choose from.
