Things to See & Do -

Seward is the gateway to Kenai Fjords National Park. Visiting the park is most often done by boat, by cruising through Resurrection Bay and the offshore waters of the park. April and May is the time of year to see whales migrating through the area. Several tour companies offer daily whale watching cruises. Helicopter tours of Kenai Fjords is also available, including landings on the glaciers and a half-hour dog sledding trip on the glacier. Just out of town, visitors can hike up to Exit Glacier, located in the park. Seward is also a popular fishing port, with salt water salmon and halibut charters available. For those that want to know more about the city itself, the Real Alaskan Tour takes people through the town, pointing out the major sights and attractions, including a world-class dog sled racing kennel. July 4th is a special day in Seward, with a huge celebration and the race on Mount Marathon.

Some of the hotels also have restaurants.

Geography –

Seward is located on the northern end of Resurrection Bay, an arm of the Gulf of Alaska. Seward is surrounded by the Kenai Mountains. To get to Seward, one generally takes the railroad, or drives. The Seward Highway heads north out of Seward, and heads to Anchorage. Access to other parts of the Kenai Peninsula can be had by taking the Sterling Highway, which meets the Seward Highway near Cooper Landing.

Climate –

Seward’s climate is heavily influenced by the ocean and mountains. Summer temperatures can reach into the 60’s and 70’s. However, because of the proximity to the ocean, rainy days are not uncommon. Winter weather is cold and wet, with temperatures in the teens and 20’s most days. Cold snaps can see temperatures drop into the teens below zero.
