A Visit to the 'End of the Road'

Homer is “the end of the road” in the Kenai Peninsula, surrounded by glacier-studded mountains and crystal-clear water. The Homer port is located on the Homer Spit, a moraine left behind from the ancient glacier that created Kachemak Bay. Today, you will find the narrow point of land full of opportunities for those who visit, from stretching out your legs on the sandy beaches to more adventurous pursuits. Not to mention Homer’s world-class fishing, which draws locals and visitors for the halibut and salmon.

If you’re in need of a more relaxing visit, then you will find it here as well. Homer is home to many businesses on The Spit and downtown, so consider visiting the local shops, bars, and restaurants that make this fishing town unique.
