End-of-the-road town known for monster halibut and eclectic residents. Postcard-beautiful setting on Kachemak Bay, rich with marine life. Sure, Homers the Halibut Fishing Capital of Alaska, but even non-anglers will revel in this end-of-the-road Alaska town. An eclectic mix of artists, fisherman, and outdoor lovers make up the lifeblood of Homer, drawn by its slow pace and postcard-ready setting by the clear-water bay. Youll have to go out of your way to get here, but we recommend you do, and try to spend a couple days at least-its one of Alaskas best small towns.
