      drive from Seward town, you can hike to the bottom of exit Glacier in just over a mile, or tackle a longer all-day hike uphill to the Harden Icefield. We also took an all-day boat ride out in the bay and its inlets to see the icebergs and lots of wildlife, like Steller sea lions and bald eagles. The boat trip was expensive and time-consuming, but one of the most memorable days we spent in Alaska. If you can, take the train down to Seward from Anchorage instead of driving -- lotsa fun, even for kids!
