Locations in Kenai Peninsula
Seward | Kenai Peninsula
Seward is a charming coastal town 127 miles south of Anchorage. It is one of Alaska’s oldest and most scenic communities. Abrupt mountain slopes cloaked in shaggy summer greens and snow form an impressive backdrop for this progressive city of 2,700 people. Tourism, shipping and fishing are the mainstay of Seward’s economy.
Each year Seward hosts the famous 4th of July Mt. Marathon Race, one of the oldest mountain races in North America. The total length of the race is three miles and in 2018 the winner took 44 min. 13 seconds.
Excellent accommodations, restaurants, RV parks, and tent camping are available in Seward, and you’ll always find friendly hospitality from the residents. Seward was voted All American City in 1963, 1965 and 2005.
