Nestled among the rugged mountains of Resurrection Bay, Seward is a city unique in Alaska. Year round residents and visitors enjoy Seward’s galleries and shops, cinema, sporting events, and unique touring opportunities. Whales, puffins, sea otters, sea lions, black and brown bears and eagles are all nearby watching you.
Seward’s July 4th celebrations are the best in the state, with music, street vendors, midnight fireworks, and the incredible Mt. Marathon Footrace.
Other adventures such as kayaking, bicycling, horseback riding, skiing, snowshoeing, and hunting await you. Fishing opportunities abound, with fantastic early summer sockeye runs, and silver salmon runs in August and September. Of course, our halibut fishing is second to none, drawing in anglers from around the globe.
Rebuilt after the Good Friday Earthquake of 1964, Seward is a prosperous community with year round activities that are sure to give you a truly Alaskan experience you will not soon forget.
