If you are in Seward without a vehicle, Exit Glacier guides is a great way to cheaply get to and from the Exit glacier. They offer a $10 shuttle (you really don't need a $50 tour) which covers the round trip journey. Once you get there, you can explore on your own. Note -- in the busy season, you need to reserve your spot for the return trip (which hourly shuttle you'll be on). We had 3 hours, and it was plenty for the 2 trails we wanted to do.
The outwash plain trail is easy and most people can do this one. If you want to get up close and personal with the glacier -- your feet will get wet crossing the streams of the outwash plain. Plan accordingly.
The overlook trail is a little tougher --- uphill and about 1.25 miles (or so) but well worth it in terms of views.
Down around the visitor center, we encountered the only mosquitos we found on the trip --- and there were lots of them!
