Seward Alaska lies right along the coast of the halibut capitol of the world. This means a lot of boats and a lot of fishermen (fisher people for the politically correct). A tiny little town with a lovely cosy atmosphere. For those touring Alaska, this is should be a definite location. If the skies are clear, which is rare for this part of the world, one can see the Fjords national park that lies across the bay. One can book a cruise or a tour from the park headquarters in Seward for a closer look at the walls of ice.

I was on a family trip and with limited time (we were heading up to Denali park) we didn’t have time for the tour, but visited the shops and ate the best fish and chips that I have ever eaten.
Halibut cooked in Seward was caught the same day as prepared, or so they told us, regardless it was delicious. Some where in between Seward and anchorage, I forget the exact location, is the Benny Benson memorial, I forget what it is exactly and can only laugh every time I see the photo of us in front of it. I think it’s my favorite memorial ever, and would also recommend a stop for a lovely photo opportunity with it. It’s a long drive along the coast and one may need to stop for a pit stop, not to worry there is plenty of coverage for those suffering stage fright. I love Alaska and wish I could afford to go again.
