Experience Seward’s Coastline Splendor
While Seward is one of the oldest communities in Alaska, its historic buildings, landmarks, and museums are nothing shy of ordinary. Our Seward travel guide is designed to cover all aspects of the area’s most unique attractions. The downtown area features the famous Alaska SeaLife Center as well as access to water taxis, whale watching boats, and cruise ships. You can even walk to the closest glacier from town. Seward is also the gateway to Kenai Fjords National Park, a breathtaking setting to view sea life along this stunning, ice-sculpted coastline.
