Not what I expected!

So, I was anticipating that the Spit would be an extension of Homer, solid stores. Not so. You head for the spit and as you drive out on it, pass businesses and vacant land... read more

So, I was anticipating that the Spit would be an extension of Homer, solid stores. Not so. You head for the spit and as you drive out on it, pass businesses and vacant land. It's 4 miles long. I've never seen more rv's in my life pulled over. Along the way you'll pass the fishing hole, where you can pay... More

Lots of fun places to explore. It was fun watching people fish in the lagoon. The tide changes were also interesting.

We did not realize what we were about to experience when going to the Homer Spit. There were numerous places to eat, shop, Charter boats and enjoy Alaska ' scenery. If you're in Alaska be sure and visit the Homer Spit.

It's definitely a tourist-trap, with lots of little shacks full of the usual gimmicks, however, there are some nice locally-made things to be picked-up, too. Plenty of free parking, places to eat and you need to visit the Salty Dog pub, put your name on a dollar bill and pin it on the wall. Ferry rides to Seldovia can be... More

The Homer Spit is an odd attraction. It is a 4.5 mile narrow stretch of land that juts out into the Bay and you can drive along. It certainly has great views and a wealth of souvenir stores, restaurants and tour companies. However, it also seems to be a dumping ground for used parts and trash, and storage for big... More

This strip of land, Homer Spit, extends 4 1/2 miles out into a picturesque bay. With jagged mountains and ocean faring vessels plying the bay. There is not a longer narrow spit of land in all the world. It is an entire resort town on a spit of land. It includes a harbor, hotels, shops, restaurants, tour companies and fishing... More

What a fun place to hang out and just walk, eat, take in the views both of the bay and the harbor. Definitely a must see. Parking was easy too.
