Seward businesses have begun to see the signs of springtime activity as the weather improves. There’s more weekend visitors taking advantage of the sights and activities that the Resurrection Bay area has to offer. Seasonal businesses have also begun to open their doors in anticipation of the flood of visitor traffic to come. Those local enterprises that kept their doors open through the winter experienced a relative boom with additional commerce supported by visiting fisheries and oil industry vessels. The upward trend in increased local trade year round is expected to continue as new port and railroad construction brings more business to the shores of Resurrection Bay.
