Seward is a very scenic town, located at the head of the Resurrection Bay on the Kenai Peninsula, about 126 miles south of Anchorage, the biggest city in Alaska. Known as the “Gateway to the Kenai Fjords National Park”, Seward is placed against the beautiful backdrop of the 3000-ft-tall Mt Marathon. This town was founded on an Easter Sunday by the Russian explorers in 1903. It was destroyed by the tidal wave unleashed by the Good Friday Earthquake of 1964 but the town was rebuilt and today it is home to about 3000 people. Seward is named after William H. Seward, the secretary of state, who advocated the purchase of Alaska from Russia in 1867.
