Introducing Seward

Seward is at the crossroads of everything. Perched on the edge of Resurrection Bay, it offers out-of-this-world views of water, sky, mountain and forest, and is easily accessed by road, boat and rail. Because of its size (and its history as a railroad port), there is plenty of nightlife, good shopping and quality restaurants in the picturesque old-time downtown area.

Just a jump from town, you have access to Kenai Fjords National Park, superb sea kayaking, birding and whale watching, and hikes and bikes that can take you to the top of the Harding Ice Field or across the whole Kenai Peninsula.

The body of the city is divided into two centers: the newer, touristy harbor and the historic downtown. Lowell Point stretches to the south of town, and other amenities can be found just north along the Seward Hwy.
