Seward Highway
Few highways have as many moods as the Seward Highway. The 127-mile road, which runs from Anchorage down to Seward, can be all cheery sunshine one day—with views of snowcapped mountains, surfers riding the bore tide, and beluga whales. And cranky old man the next—with socked-in mountains, mist, and mean-looking whitecaps on the water. Whatever the mood, there’s a load to see. It’s completely fair to say that driving the Seward, named an All-American Road and a National Forest Scenic Byway, is both the journey and the destination. (The road is also well-known for gut-punch traffic jams during the summer—it’s the only road leading south down the Kenai Peninsula out of Anchorage.)
