Seward is located at the head of Resurrection Bay, a stunning fjord on the Gulf of Alaska. Nestled between the mountains and the ocean, the town of Seward is home to approximately 3,000 year-round residents. 

The greater Seward area encompasses unincorporated communities and neighborhoods from Lowell Point to Primrose, and from Nashwoods to Exit Glacier and beyond, and is home to over 5,000 inhabitants year-round. 

A full range of local services support the Seward area community, including a hospital, post office, police and fire departments, grocers and pharmacy, a public library, as well as an elementary, middle, and high school. 

Surrounded by pristine wilderness and vast public lands, Seward shares its space with Alaska State Parks, Chugach National Forest, and Kenai Fjords National Park.
