The city of Seward was named for President Lincoln's Secretary of State, William Henry Seward, the man who engineered the Purchase of Alaska from Russia in 1867. Seward played a vital role in WWII. The Port of Seward was the northern-most ice-free port and served as the southern terminus of the Alaska Railroad, a critical supply line for the war effort. Today, Seward remains a pivotal city for delivery of supplies and transportation via railroad, dog sled, or by boat. Seward is one of Alaska’s top fishing cities for salmons and silvers.

During our 3 day stay, we visited Exit Glacier; took a dog sled tour on Godwin Glacier; visited Alaska Sealife Center; and shopped in downtown Seward.
