Fairy Tale Town In Alaska

July 14, 2020

What is the best time of year to visit Seward, Alaska?

The best time to visit Seward is between the months of May and September. This is the prime visiting season for the whole state of Alaska, because the days are long, the weather is mild and sometimes downright gorgeous, and the animals are out. Seward comes alive in the summertime. There’s plenty to see and do, including hiking, whale watching, fishing, and exploring their beautiful downtown. All the restaurants are open and so are the hotels. There is something to do in Seward all year long however, so if you can’t make it in the summer, visiting in another season is still fun!

How many days should I spend in Seward?

At least two! Resurrection Bay alone deserves a day of exploration. Book a glacier boat tour, or a whale watch. Getting out on the water is amazing and gets you really up close and personal with some of the beauty this area offers. But there’s also the Alaska SeaLife Center, so many good restaurants, and lots of amazing hikes nearby. You’ll want at least two days to soak in the magic of this town!
