Things to do in Homer

Dubbed the "Halibut Fishing Capital of Alaska", Homer is a charming town brimming with an eclectic love of art, outdoor adventure and of course, excellent fishing.

Protected by the Kenai Mountains to the north and east, this colorful town set on Homer Spit (a five mile stretch of land that reaches into the deep, glistening Kachemak Bay), boasts mild climates and an inspiring panorama of ruggedly majestic peaks, fjords and glaciers.

Visitors can explore the variety of culinary delights from gourmet sandwich bars and fine dining to small-town coffee shops. The array of art galleries, museums, and live music and theatre venues contribute to Homer being the arts capital of Southwestern Alaska. The locals take great pride in keeping their beautiful land and clear blue waters pristine, making this postcard setting worthy of exploring for a few days.
