Old Seward Oceanview Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The air is crisp, fresh, and delightful in the Old Seward/Oceanview neighborhood of Anchorage, Alaska. The coastal boundary, which extends north along Highway 1, leads inward toward the metropolitan area; the outskirts of the community are rural and consist of large, rugged mountains and miles of beaches. The landscape contains an abundance of scenic parks and wilderness areas.
Small neighborhood parks such as Ocean View, Rabbit Creek and Little Rabbit Creek Bluff Park are located within community boundaries. Larger parks such as Far North Bicentennial Park and Chugach State Park sprawl across thousands of acres and offer numerous hiking trails, rushing creek waters and several species of Alaskan plants and animals. Hunting, fishing, and mountain recreation opportunities abound in the Old Seward/Oceanview neighborhood.
Chugach State Park is adjacent to Chugach National Forest. It is one of America’s largest state parks, and has been recognized on “America’s Best and Top 10 List.” It is the wilderness region that keeps city-dwellers humble, especially when large game and wild animals wander into town. Chugach State Park and National Forest share hundreds of thousands of acres of wild land where animals roam freely in the open country.
Different weather conditions encourage a wide range of outdoor recreational sports and activities. Sledding, skiing and snowboarding are popular in winter months, while camping, rock climbing, rafting and hiking create exciting adventures in warmer weather. Nature enthusiasts enjoy the many opportunities to observe and capture the essence of Alaska through photography, painting and various other art forms.
The Old Seward/Oceanview neighborhood is located less than one hour from Anchorage, a lively city with numerous museums and establishments documenting its history.
