Why Choose Seward?
Seward is said to be Alaska’s Favorite Seaside Town. The United States purchased the mostly uninhabited territory in 1867 from Russia at a cost of $7.2 million dollars, which was 586,000 acres at a little over 2.5 cents per acre! Becoming a territory and the Klondike Gold Rush and later growth after World War II changed all that. Statehood in 1959 was the most helpful change of all because the Federal Government brought housing, education, and transportation.
Being situated on Resurrection Bay on Kenai Peninsula’s southeastern tip, ferry lines and cruise ships use Seward in stopovers for passengers who can travel around Alaska by the Inside Passage. Dockings of more than 100 cruise ships occur in May through September, and the Alaska Marine Highway is available all year.
You can climb a 3,022 foot path to the top of Mt. Marathon in the Kenai Fjords National Park. The town stages a race up and down the mountain during each Fourth of July. The Harding Ice field, from the Ice Age, is recognized as the largest ice field that is entirely within United States borders.
Fishing is the Largest Attraction
The Gulf of Alaska and the Resurrection Bay have some of the best world-class fishing, and their annual Silver Salmon Derby is the richest and largest in all of Alaska.
