A Day In Seward

There are plenty of reasons to spend a day in Seward, and the midnight sun makes day trips possible from Anchorage. Check out the Alaska SeaLife Center, explore historic downtown, hunt for murals painted by local artists, watch the salmon run, take a half-day cruise in Resurrection Bay, enjoy fresh local seafood, or take a few casts from shore. Around Exit Glacier, hit the trails, go on a half-day ice hiking trip, or join a ranger for a nature walk. Other excursions that are doable in a shorter day include half-day kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding, flightseeing, dog sledding and kennel tours, guided hiking, and ziplining.
