Seward is a stop on the Alaska Marine Highway which connects much of the Alaska southeast. There are numerous obligatory tourist stores. You can also admire sleek lines of cruise ships in the harbor, and wish you never grow old enough to consider cruise a fun way to travel.
Just outside of town, Exit Glacier Road takes you to Kenai Fjords national park. You will not see any fjords from the road, only the Exit Glacier. It is a convenient way to access the Harding Icefield, more than 600 square miles of ice from which many glaciers descend, some all the way into the sea. A 3.5 mile trail along the Exit Glacier takes you to a lookout at the icefield. Of course, if you are like us, you will not be able to tell the fog from the snow and the ice when you get there.
