This is a must see for anyone visiting Alaska.

Great place to visit in Homer. There are lots of terrific shops and restaurants along the spit. It can be a bit windy so dress for the weather.

Homer is such an amazing place, I can hardly find the words. I have been coming here for twenty years, and each time I discover something new. The people are so warm and welcoming (if a bit odd). The scenery is a once-in-a-lifetime must see, and the number of things to do is massive. All I can say is....GO!

I loved walking around the pylons under the dock and finding the colorful starfish. The wonders are endless.

The kids loved the three days we spent here fishing and loafing. There is plenty to see and do. They liked to watch the Buttwhackers doing their magic wuith the Halibut brought in. The fishing hole is where my boys spent most of their time when we weren't dining out. It is easy to walk(it's flat) and there are plenty... More

When going to the spit if you go down to the beach make sure to bring good rubber shoes or boots. It's not easy access to the beach. You have to walk down a semi steep path. But once down there beautiful!

We had a great time, and got a taste of this small drinking town with a big fishing problem. It started as a trip into town (2 hour trip) from Salmon Fest to get breakfast and Supplies, and ended a fish and chips trip. Was had fresh halibut no worms or nothin... cool spot, cant wait to fish it next... More
