About Seward, Alaska
Seward is one of the most famous cities in Alaska due to its proximity to Anchorage, making it an easy place for Alaskans and tourists alike to watch glaciers and fish.
Seward is named after William Seward, who served as Secretary of State under Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson and who negotiated the Alaska Purchase in 1867 from Russia. At the time, Seward’s critics saw the purchase as foolish, as Alaska was a remote land that was thought to be worthless. Seward defended his decision for the rest of his life, arguing that Americans would eventually realize Alaska’s true value.
Since then, Alaska has become one of the most prosperous states in the Union, paying for its original purchase price many times over with oil, gold, fur, fish, timber, and other natural resources. It has also become a tourist powerhouse, with thousands of people visiting Alaska every year to take in its natural beauty and observe its diverse wildlife.
While there is plenty to see and do in Seward, don’t expect to see walruses or polar bears unless you visit during the Seward Polar Bear Jump-Off Festival. Every January during the third week, costume- and cape-clad characters take a dive into the frigid waters of Resurrection Bay and pop back out. This feat of athleticism and endurance earns them membership in the Polar Bear Cub, making the festival a major attraction for tourists during Alaska’s cold winters.
In addition to these sights, Resurrection Bay is a tourist attraction on its own, drawing numerous sightseers, fishers, boaters, and others. Resurrection Bay also borders Kenai Fjords National Park, where visitors can observe glaciers and Alaskan wildlife. Finally, Seward is the historic beginning of the Alaska Railroad, which goes to Fairbanks, and is also the starting point of the Iditarod Trail, the famous gold rush-era mail route to Nome.
