Gorgeous water with an incredible view of the mountain range. Interesting how the fog rolls in over the water.

Just a beautiful area. The bay is surrounded by mountains and glaciers. We visited in July 2014 and the bay was teaming with wildlife. Beautiful wildflowers were in bloom as well. Just an amazing area.

Stunning views of mountains and water abound. It is important to be realistic - many days will be overcast. But wait for the clear (even if partially) days - you will be amazed by how beautiful the area is. Unlike other areas of the U.S., there is only one place to see this from - the town of Seward -...

Come and check out this 'hidden' treasure, near Miller's Landing. There are some great Bed and Breakfasts's here, including Angel's Rest.

We took a boat tour around Resurrection Bay and had a wonderful time. On this tour we were even able to see whales. There was a mother whale and her baby following us a good part of the way. It is so beautiful to see the open water like that and to be surrounded by mountains in all directions.

Beautiful place to visit! Visited on the 4th of July and it was a little crowded but understandable with all that was going on there. It's not everywhere you can watch fireworks at midnight with a sunset in the background!

Just beautiful. Worth the stop. Take notice of the surrounding mountains and glaciers. Picnic is super along the river.

Walking along Resurrection Bay is relaxing and fun, and there is a good chance you are going to see a sea otter or two.

It has spectacular views with Snow cap mountains surrounding the Bay. Given Sun is out :D. Else equally beautiful but with clouds playing hide and seek with mountains by the shore , there are plenty of good restaurant's.
