Located on the southern coast of Alaska, in the southeast part of Kenai Peninsula at the head of Resurrection Bay, Seward offers a variety of things to do and see. Although Seward's latitude is 6° north of the equator, it has a milder climate than would normally be expected for that location. Because of the mildness of the climate, Seward's small but important port can remain open all year, for business and tourism both.

Seward is the southern terminus of the Alaska Railroad, earlier called the Alaska Central Railroad. The first settlers came in 193, most of them to build the railroad which extends 525 mi (845 km) north to the city of Fairbanks. All railroad traffic into and out of Alaska must pass through Seward's Port. Seward residents enjoy such awe inspiring views as Resurrection Bay and Portage Glacier.
