About the neighborhood
The Seward Birdhouse is conveniently located in the heart of Seward with parking on-site. Enjoy spectacular views of the snow-capped mountains and Resurrection Bay from the front and famous Mt Marathon to the back.

2 blocks south is the historic downtown, restaurants, and shops. The beach is also 2 blocks away where the gentle paved path along the oceanfront leads one way to the community playground and Alaska Sealife Center, and the other direction to the Kenai Fjords National Park Visitor Center, harbor shops and restaurants, and tour boats. Forest and mountain trails beckon a short walk to the west.

Be sure to visit Kenai Fjords National Park by boat, drive out to Exit Glacier for a ranger-guided or self-guided walk on the trails, visit our new community Library/Museum and learn...

A rental car is the most convenient way to get around to all the sights.

Exit Glacier is also serviced by Liquid Adventures with hourly trips.

The Alaska Sealife Center is a nice walk along the waterfront path, part of the National Historic Iditarod Trail, or straight south on Fifth Avenue 3 blocks and over one.
