spring in Alaska:Seward Harbor

Located in the South-Central region and about 2 hours of the most stunning drive from Anchorage is the town of Seward, a must stop before or after your visit to the Kenai Fjords National Park and an epic spot for kayaking, whale-watching, and photographing Mount Marathon!

Seward was founded in 1903, when settlers arrived to plot construction of a northbound rail line. By the time the Alaska Railroad was completed in 1923, this ice-free port became the most important shipping terminal on the Kenai Peninsula. Like many towns in Southcentral Alaska, Seward began a new era of history in 1964 after the Good Friday Earthquake caused fires and tidal waves that destroyed 90 percent of the town. www.travelalaska.com
