Homer, AK Bed and Breakfasts and Attractions
Many visitors choose to stay in Homer because it is the "Halibut Fishing Capital of the World.” Right in the middle of the action is “the Spit,” a peninsula of land which juts out nearly a mile into the bay. Charter fishing, restaurants, and shops offer attractions and entertainment for guests. Eagle viewing and bird watching for sea birds is popular, too. The town rises from the coast, and many local inns offer stunning views of the bay, islands, and mountains, which are often bathed in gorgeous colors at sunset. Kachemak Bay offers outstanding fishing and more than 90 miles of hiking trails within the Kachemak Bay State Park, which is located across the bay from town. You can reach the Park by water taxi or plane for kayaking, fishing, tide pooling, and more.
A large number of painters, potters, sculptors, and jewelers make their home in this area and sell their goods in the local shops and galleries. There is a vibrant “First Friday” art walk every first Friday of the month. Events like concerts and music festivals and the famous Kachemak Bay Shorebird Festival every May keep residents and visitors alike busy.
Instead of a conventional hotel, consider lodging at one of the Alaska Bed and Breakfast Association member inns.
