Cordova is located in majestic Prince William Sound, and offers visitors opportunities for sightseeing, watersports, fishing, hiking, clam-digging, and many other activities. It was named Cordova because the inlet that it is situated next to was originally called Puerto Cordova by Don Salvador Fidalgo in 172. Today the body of water is called Orca Inlet, but the original name stuck with the city.

Michael Henry assigned the name Cordova to the city in 196 when it became the railroad terminus and major shipping port for the Kennecott Mine on the Copper River. Today Cordova is a bustling community with a thriving economy dependent on tourism and commercial fishing.
