Alaska is iconic for their sightseeing and vacation fun throughout the state and Seward is no different. Known as the "Gateway to Kenai Fjords National Park", Seward is a walkable city and is one of Alaska's oldest and most scenic communities. The Seward cruise ship terminal, Dale R. Lindsey Alaska Railroad Intermodal Facility, is located on the north section of Resurrection Bay and is nearby restaurants, lodging, shops and attractions.
