Maybe it's all the rain that forges such strong bonds — Seward is full of passionate people united by a love for this place. People here genuinely care about the incredible environment where they live and work. From marine science non-profits and athletic clubs to arts and culture, the community is vibrant and committed. You’ll also find no shortage of great restaurants, coffee shops and lodges in town!
In the heart of Resurrection Bay lies a small island that's wonderfully picturesque and blissfully remote. Just 12 miles from Seward, this is a place locals come back to time and time again for accessible isolation. Spend the night at Kenai Fjords Wilderness Lodge and you'll get that “this is why I live in Alaska!” feeling all over again.
Local Alaskans know that spring and fall are prime times to visit Seward and the coast of southcentral Alaska. The lovely long days of summer are not to be missed, either. So do the Alaskan thing and make a trip to Seward. You won't be disappointed!
