Drive to this end-of-the-road coastal community for outstanding fishing, good restaurants, hiking, relaxation, and more. Unique shops and cafes, great views of the mountains. I love this little town.
I love Homer. It is my favorite spot in the world. All the locals are friendly and inviting. The food is amazing and the slow pace is just what some people need to des tress from the crazy.
While the Alaskan winter is beautiful, it felt good to go to Homer to get away from the freezing cold for a few days. Located at the "End of the Road," 225 miles south of Anchorage, Homer lies among rolling hills by the sea. The five-hour drive provides stunning views of southwest Alaska. As a popular summer destination, many of the small businesses close for the winter, but that doesn't change the fact that it is still a beautiful, laid-back town. Its landmark beach, called Homer Spit, has been recognized as one of the top 100 beaches in the US.
Wonderful town by the bay! Surrounded by mountains...Homer has a great small-town feel with nice places to eat, great seafood, art galleries, horseback riding, natural history museaum, NOAA/Dept of Interior Visitor's Center....and of course it's fun to go across the bay to Halibut Cove for lunch and art gallery viewing. And don't forget, Homer is the Halibut fishing capital of the world!
