Seward sits on Resurrection Bay on the southeast coast of the Kenai Peninsula. As a southern terminus for the Alaska Railroad and a road link to Anchorage and the Interior, Seward is a long-standing transportation hub. Many cruise ships visit Seward each year; it is the gateway to Kenai Fjords National Park. In addition to tourism, the economy includes commercial fishing, ship services and repairs, oil and gas development, a coal export facility for Usibelli Mine, a state prison, and the University of Alaska’s Institute of Marine Sciences and the Alaska SeaLife Center.
