There's lots more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, tour the pleasant surroundings at Crow Pass National Historic Trail, look for all kinds of wild species at Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, and make a trip to Lake Hood Harbor.

Seward

For most visitors to this part of the world, the wild part of Alaska starts at Seward, a small port city that takes advantage of the region's natural beauty.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Harding Ice Field Trail and Mt. Marathon. Change things up with a short trip to Exit Glacier in Kenai Fjords National Park (about 32 minutes away). The adventure continues: add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, trek along Tonsina Creek Trail, and get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour.
