If you hear names like "Resurrection Bay" and "Marathon
Mountain" you are probably at the romantic town of Seward on the
Seward Highway. The town was named to honor William H. Seward, who
helped the US purchase Alaska from Russia.
Near Seward, visitors will find Kenai Fjords National Park and
the Chugach National Forest headquarters. While in Seward, visitors
won't want to miss a visit to the Alaska Sealife Center. These
attractions are available year-round, but Seward has something
extra during the fourth of July. Celebrating Independence Day in
Seward means running or watching the Mount Marathon Race and
participating in events all around Seward.
