Despite having a small population, Seward is one of Alaska’s oldest towns. The name itself comes from William H. Seward, who was the American statesman responsible for negotiating the purchase of Alaska from Russia. The city is located on the water and is also home to a train terminus, so tourism thrives in the city for people looking to fish, people coming from cruises, and people just looking to explore some Alaskan wilderness. Must-visit attractions include Alaska SeaLife Center, the picturesque Seward Boat Harbor, and the nearby Bear Lake. Skip the hotels and stay somewhere more immersed in nature. Check out these top yurts in Seward, Alaska.
