Homer and Kachemak Bay

I was lucky to have a family celebration in Homer, Alaska recently. We had a blast, and I’m always ready to have an excuse to go there.


Homer is known as the “end of the road,” as it’s at the end of the Kenai Peninsula and the furthest south you can drive on the Sterling Highway (state Highway #1, but no locals use the number, just the name). Homer’s a lovely, small town on Kachemak Bay. There’s lots to do in town, whether you’re there for the art, fishing, kayaking, hiking, beachcombing, or just hanging out in a beautiful place. The Homer Spit is a natural feature that extends into the bay, where you can shop, eat, and catch the ferry or a charter boat. You’ll find as many Alaskans there as you’ll find out-of-state travelers, since Homer is a playground for all of us.
