Seward

Trip Planner USA  /  Alaska  /  Seward

Alaska Starts Here

For most visitors to this part of the world, the wild part of Alaska starts at Seward, a small port city that takes advantage of the region's natural beauty. Named after the man who led American negotiations for the purchase of Alaska from Russia in 1867, this small town of just over 2,000 residents is the state's only deep-water, ice-free port offering air, road, and rail connection to Anchorage. Fishing is one of the town's main industries. Despite its location just within the subarctic zone, Seward remains a popular tourist destination because of its relatively mild temperatures and easy access to one of the world's last few truly unspoiled frontiers. With the Inspirock world travel planner, Seward and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.
