About Seward (Anchorage), Alaska

Anchorage is Alaska’s take on a metropolis, and its population constitutes more than 40 percent of the state’s inhabitants. While smaller Alaskan towns capitalize on raw, natural beauty, Anchorage is quirky and cool.

Free Yellow School Bus Shuttle with stops around town and they also take your luggage as well. Picked us up at the train station. We used this to get around during our brief stay. Give tip many of them are veterans. Also the Sea life Center is a great stop. Souvenirs here are higher priced than the other stops.

Please, take the train from Anchorage (6:45am) to Seward. Remember to check in one hour early, they will check your luggage and they will be waiting for you at your stateroom! Amazing! However, don't forget to bring a heavy coat (see below). The train is 4.5 hours non-stop beautiful scenery. We also had breakfast at the train cafeteria, which has an amazing window for the view. We ended up staying near the cafeteria for the rest of the trip to take pictures. When you arrive at Seward (11:05am), I highly recommend the Kenai Fjord tours. The advantage of the small boat (as opposed to the big cruise) is that it can get A LOT CLOSER to the glaciers and wild animals. Seriously, breath-taking! Also, don't forget to leave a heavy coat out of the checked luggage at the train station. We didn't realize it would be so cold on the sea (the temperature forecast was quite deceiving). The tour crews were kind enough to lend me a blanket. So very nice of them.

We booked the train to Anchorage ourselves. You can take the free shuttle which stops at the ship and all spots around town. You can check your luggage at the train station in the morning for the train ride at 6 pm.

The 3 hour bus ride from Anchorage to Seward doesnt stop for snacks, so, if you're off a long flight EAT at the airport or you'll be hungry. The bus ride, VERY scenic...gets you in the mood for what is to come. I didnt see much in Seward as we boarded immediately, but there didnt seem to be much to see anyway.
