The Seward Highway follows along the Turnagain Arm with many interpretative rest stops and view points. Depending on the season, it is not unusual to spot beluga whales or dall sheep from your car window. Take the highway and look for signs to Girdwood, the home of Alyeska Resort.

At the "T", turn right for Alyeska Resort's Daylodge and base area.
