Away far on the tip of the Kenai Peninsula, on the shores of the Cook Inlet and Kachemak Bay, far from the hustle and bustle of big city Anchorage sits quirky, creative Homer, Alaska.
Homer's most distinctive feature, the Spit - a curved finger of land left behind thousands of years ago by glaciers that once blanketed all of the Kenai Peninsula - is home to commercial, sport and charter fishing boats, water taxis, ferries, research ships and U.S. Coast Guard cutters that tie up in it's harbor.
In the summer, the small shops that line the Spit open their doors to the thousands of tourists that converge on Homer. Expresso shops, ice cream stands, restaurants and souvenir shops of all kinds welcome visitors each year.
The waters of Cook Inlet and Kachemak Bay are home to salmon and halibut, as well as orca and humpback whales. Surrounding forests are claimed by black and brown bear, moose, wolves and other creatures.
In addition to all that wonder of nature stuff, visitors to Homer will experience some of the very talented locals - artists, writers, sculpturers, photographers, entertainers, musicians, and more who make this their home.
When you visit Alaska, be sure to leave a few days of 'down time' - rent a car or an RV and make your way across the Kenai Peninsula to Homer.
