Suggestions for spending a day between Seward and Anchorage

Jump to last reply

We will have one day--6 AM until midnight approximately-- to spend in the area between the cities of Seward and Anchorage in mid -August. Our cruise ship docks at 6 AM in Seward and our flight home from Anchorage departs at 1:41 AM the next morning. From my research, we could take a morning bus to Anchorage, take an evening train to Anchorage, or take an all day tour of the region with a day trip company. We’re looking for light hiking or a bus tour (especially for photos), not kayaking, cruising, or flights (we we would have done the latter three during the cruise). We’re looking for a land tour, basically.

Is it better to go directly to Anchorage and get there in time for some museums in the afternoon? Or is it better to spend more time in the area on the way to Anchorage? And, what is there to do/see in the long summer evening in Anchorage, besides enjoying a good meal, and then strolling through the streets?

Any suggestions would be helpful. I posted this also on the cruises forum since I wasn't sure which would be more appropriate. Thanks.
Kathy
