Sandwiched between the Kenai mountains and the waters of Kenai Fjords National Park, Seward s one of Alaska's oldest and most scenic communities, with Mt. Marathon rising steeply behind town.
A spectacular 2.5 hour drive south from Anchorage brings you to this seaside village, which offers a bustling harbor, quaint shops and galleries, and many different ways to tour Kenai Fjords National Park.
Beside the influx of visitors every summer, Seward becomes a big magnet for two annual events during the high season. Every July 4, runners race to the summit of Mt Marathon, in America's second- oldest footrace. The town's population also balloons during the August Silver Salmon derby, the state’s largest. You can get out on the water and cast your line for several-hundred-pound halibut or salmon so numerous they bump into your boat.
