We drove from Anchorage to Seward. Just over 3 hours, with several stops along the way; McHugh Creek, Beluga Point, Portage Glacier, Alyeska Resort. We saw two moose near Portage Glacier. Fuel up and potty at Hwy 1 and Alyeska Hwy, very few rest areas after that until Seward. Lunch at Chinooks in Seward. Recommended by several locals and it... More

Beyond words beautiful! We took our time and enjoyed the drive taking several photos! The mountains were gorgeous and the water was the prettiest blue.

It's big, it's wild, and it's close to Anchorage. From easy day hikes to epic adventures, it's all right there. Find one of the many trailheads, leave a trip plan on the driver's seat, LOCK YOUR DOORS, and go have an adventure. Alaska waits!

You really need to take this drive in October when the trees are changing. People rave about the beauty of the trees in New England but the northeast has nothing on Alaska. I took so many pictures that it took me almost a full day to drive through this Forest and even though the pictures don't do it justice the... More

above the trees an air of freshness awaits you. Paths to follow and highlights in every direction. Just pack your energy and plenty of water and comfortable shoes for this adventure

I hiked off the regular trails. The terrain can be challenging, but is a lot of fun. Just make sure people know where you are.

A chance of lifetime trip to Anchorage to visit expecting daughter and Army officer son-in-law in April 2013. Breathtaking...Gorgeous...Majestic are understated words to describe the natural beauty of the Chugach. In April, there was still snow and cold-but a different cold than Texas. The way of life for everyone there is completely different there; so unique. Roads were in great... More

Well it's not the Tongass but stop in anyway. I would suggest Cordova for anyone looking for a secluded vacation in a beautiful area without a lot of people around.
