Frontier Trading Post: Healthy Snacks for Your Tour Days
I stopped in this awesome health food store because I had a craving for ginger candy for some reason and they had a great selection to choose from. I picked a couple packages of individually wrapped Gin-Gins and they were really nice to have (and share) on the boat tours we took while in Seward. I don't get sea-sick, but when I don't eat right (i.e. every day on vacation...), my stomach can get a little wonky - these were a huge help!
What to buy: Ginger candy and other healthy snacks.
What to pay: Gin-Gins are $2.95/3oz They also have Spicy Apple Gin-Gins for $3.95/3oz, but I didn't like them nearly as much as the original.

Breeze T's: Shopping at Seward
There are several little stores to shop at in Seward, but my sister and I really enjopyed going through the discounted prices at the small souvenir shop and gift store beside Breeze Inn.
I got shirts on Alaska for just $3! Wow, can't beat that. They also have several items for kids but they were not on-sale. The cashier however was on her first day on the job and so it took a little while to process our credit cards.
The store is conveniently located for those staying at the Breeze Inn and visitors to Seward won't miss it because it is just right beside the docks...it does look like two stores but the two shopping areas are connected.
