TRAVEL TO THE “END OF THE ROAD”

The most southerly tip of Alaska’s Highway 1, the bustling city of Homer might be the last stop, but it’s certainly not a destination to be overlooked. Protected from harsh winds by the Kenai Mountains, Homer’s mild temperature makes it a favorite amongst tourists. Nestled between mountain bluffs and Kachemak Bay, downtown Homer is a hillside mecca for unique, local goods. Stroll down the peony-lined Pioneer Avenue to discover a variety of upscale restaurants, cafes, art galleries—even a local brewery and winery.

Stretching from the city’s downtown into Homer Bay, the 4.5-mile long Homer Spit is the site of much activity. With a multi-use trail that runs the length of the spit, it’s a great spot for beachcombing, biking, and birding. It’s also the best place to cast a line or catch a charter tour to deeper waters in search of the region’s best catches—halibut and king salmon.

Just up from the mouth of the harbor is Kachemak Bay, your destination for awe-inspiring marine wildlife tours. Hop aboard a charter boat and experience the ultimate in whale watching. Humpbacks, orcas, minkes, finbacks, and gray whales all call these great waters home. Visit Kachemak Bay State Wilderness Park, an expansive paradise for outdoor sports enthusiasts. Kayak the park’s calm protected coves, and hike amongst its snow-capped mountains and glaciers. Whether you’re in search of fresh mountain air, fine dining, or adventure, Homer is a reprieve from the ordinary that just has to be seen to be believed.
