Begin your adventure with a scenic city tour of Anchorage, as you depart for Seward.
Potters Marsh, your first stop, is a state game refuge, a very popular spot for bird watching from a boardwalk. This is a nesting area for waterfowl as well as arctic tern, Canada geese, swans, and ducks. In late summer, salmon can also be seen here.
Windy Point provides the opportunity to watch for dall sheep on the roadside cliffs. The salt licks here provide nourishment to the sheep.
Beluga Point provides a possible whale watch as you travel along the beautiful Turnagain Arm of the Cook Inlet. This drive also provides a great backdrop for stunning photography.

You can choose to bring cash to enjoy a sourdough sandwich at the local deli or stop at the local "Chair 5" restaurant where credit cards are accepted.
Next, visit the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, opened to the public in 1993. It is located on 140 acres at the southern edge of Turnagain Arm and the entrance to Portage Valley. AWCC provides care and rehabilitation for injured and orphaned wildlife and to provide wildlife education and awareness.
Animals that are unable to be released or survive in the wild are given refuge in the center's spacious habitats. Here people can safely get close, observe and photograph some of Alaska's largest land animals, including moose, bison, elk, deer, caribou, bears musk ox, small mammals and birds of prey.
